Tipped Minimum Wage Rises to $4.15 Per Hour

Ohio's minimum wage is scheduled to increase on January 1, 2018 to $8.30 per hour for non-tipped employees and $4.15 per hour for tipped employees. The minimum wage will apply to employees of businesses with annual gross receipts of more than $305,000 per year.

For employees at smaller companies with annual gross receipts of $305,000 or less per year after January 1, 2018, and for 14- and 15-year-olds, the state minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. For these employees, the state wage is tied to the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which requires an act of Congress and the President's signature to change.
