Thirty-one states will have had significant changes in their labor law posters by the end of 2007. That’s in addition to the federal minimum wage increase in July which affected every state.

Fourteen states had minimum wage increases this year that are already in effect, including Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.

Additional minimum wage increases go into effect on January 1, 2008, in nine states:  Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Oregon, Vermont and Washington.

Then there are eight other states that had significant changes this year in required notices other than minimum wage. These are Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas, Utah, Washington, D.C., and West Virginia.

If your business is located in any of these states — or if you do not have a federal poster with the new federal minimum wage on it yet – you will need to update your posters.
