2022 Minimum Wage Increases

Updated: Jan 12

Several states will be increasing their minimum wage requirement in 2022. The chart below provides a quick reference to compare your employee rates in IPS to what is required by state.


Employers will be required to increase employee rates in IPS to meet the new minimum requirements by each states required effective date. The U.S. Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division website can be referenced to gain more insight into each state's rules, which may include additional requirements by city and county. In addition, the website addresses minimum requirement for any tipped employees.


For those that may need assistance in making these changes, SynchronyHR is here to help. Contact us today to learn about our HR outsourcing (HRO) services.
