Pennsylvania's Minimum Wage Law

The Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act, as amended in 2006, establishes a fixed Minimum Wage and Overtime Rate for employees in Pennsylvania. It also sets forth compliance-related duties for the Department of Labor & Industry and for employers. In addition, the Minimum Wage Act provides penalties for noncompliance.
