Minimum Wage Increase Set for July 24 - 04/28/09

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the federal minimum wage for covered nonexempt employees will increase from $6.55 to $7.25 per hour effective Friday, July 24, 2009.

The University has adopted a 0 percent salary increase policy for Fiscal Year 2009-10. However, there have been adjustments to the West Lafayette and North Central pay scales. Thus new pay scales reflecting those adjustments will be available June 22 on Human Resource Services’ Compensation Pay Scales Web page. Those will remain in effect until July 24, when HR will post revised pay scales that update all minimum wages listed to the required $7.25 minimum.

As with the previous two minimum wage increases, processing any paperwork related to this increase for University employees will not be necessary.
The OnePurdue Systems Support Group will automatically raise wages as appropriate behind the scenes. Increases will become effective July 24 in compliance with the FLSA.
