Arizona’s Minimum Wage Increases on Jan. 1, 2015

Effective Jan. 1, 2015, AZ’s minimum wage will increase to $8.05/hour. Arizona employers must post the new mandatory minimum wage poster before the new year begins. The poster is available on the Arizona Industrial Commission’s website at  Arizona employers that claim tip credits for employees who customarily and regularly receive tips must pay at least $5.05/hour because the permitted $3.00/hour tip credit is tied directly to the minimum wage. If, however, an employee’s tips combined with the employer’s direct wages do not equal the AZ minimum hourly wage, then the employer must make up the difference.
