  3. How many employees are working for the employer.

Tipped Rates


NOTE FOR HOME CARE AIDES’ WORKERS: On October 1, 2022, there was a $2.00 increase per hour to the minimum hourly rate. 

REMINDER: In 2021, the tip credit was eliminated for employees of nail salons, porters, car washes and other industries. They must receive the full minimum wage rate per hour from their employer. 

Regardless of your immigration status, you have the right to receive the right minimum wage rate according to the law. 

If you have any questions regarding the wage rate you must receive, or for any inquiries related to whether your employer is paying you the right rate, please do not hesitate to contact us. All consultations are free and confidential. Happy New Year!
