Minimum wage remains the same in Missouri but the required poster is updated with an effective date of January 1, 2016.[wc_divider style=”dotted” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]
Fresh from the battle with Missouri cities that prevented them from establishing citywide wage rates, the State of Missouri’s Division of Labor Standards (DLS) announced that the Missouri 2016 minimum wage rate will remain unchanged at $7.65 per hour.
The DLS has released a revised posting that employers must display by January 1, 2016.
What Changed on the 2016 Missouri Minimum Wage Poster?
The primary change was to the year, which was updated for 2016. Although the change may not appear substantial, the revised poster is required for all Missouri businesses, and the year is “front and center” on the notice. Workers will notice if the year isn’t current!
Missouri is among the states that have indexed their minimum wage rates, meaning their minimum wage rates could change annually based on the cost of living as determined by changes to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Missouri employers are required to update their postings each year when the DLS releases revised postings, regardless of whether there was a change to the minimum wage rate or not.
