Laws for Minimum Wage in PA
The minimum wage PA businesses must pay is currently $7.25/hour, effective as of July of 2009. Overtime pay must occur at a rate no less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. Overtime kicks in after 40 hours worked in a workweek. Many employees do not know what their rights are, according to the Fair Labor Standards Act. If you’re being paid unfairly, you do have rights. Common issues we see include failure to pay adequate overtime (if at all), failure to pay workers for all hours worked, unfair tip credit systems, offering compensatory time instead of overtime, and many other offenses.
