As an employer, you need to know the legal requirements for paying your employees, including minimum wage and overtime laws. Federal and state minimum wage laws establish the minimum wage rate that employers can pay to their employees. Overtime laws require employers to pay a higher rate of pay to employees who work over a certain number of hours in a workweek. Both federal and state laws apply, and employers must comply with whichever law provides greater protection to employees. At Grant Payroll Inc, we make sure to stay up-to-date on federal and state wage requirements so we can ensure your employees are appropriately compensated for the work they do for you.
