Q: I have employees who work in New Jersey. What do I need to know about the minimum wage increase?
A: New Jersey recently passed a law that will raise the minimum wage by increments over the next five years. The minimum wage, which currently is $8.85 per hour, will increase to $10.00 per hour on July 1, 2019. It will rise to $11.00 per hour on January 1, 2020, and will increase by one dollar each subsequent year until January 1, 2024, when it will land at $15.00. Future minimum wage increases after 2024 will be tied to inflation.
