Which state posters are changing in 2021?

Posted November 23, 2020

The New Year begins with new posters in 18 states in 2021, as minimum wage increases drive the majority of the changes.

Many states have passed laws that include regular minimum wage increases. These increases often require a revised poster to be displayed on New Year’s Day.

In addition, other state postings relating to paid leave or tax information are also due for an update.

Here’s a look at the expected January posting changes:

  • Alaska — Minimum Wage
  • Arizona — Minimum Wage
  • California — Minimum Wage, CFRA
  • Colorado — Overtime & Minimum Pay Standards; Paid Leave
  • Florida — Minimum Wage
  • Louisiana — Earned Income Credit
  • Maine — Minimum Wage; Regulation of Employment
  • Minnesota — Minimum Wage
  • Missouri — Minimum Wage
  • Montana — Minimum Wage
  • New Mexico — Minimum Wage
  • New Jersey — Minimum Wage
  • New York — Minimum Wage (December 31)
  • Ohio — Minimum Wage
  • South Dakota — Minimum Wage
  • Vermont — Minimum Wage
  • Virginia — Earned Income Credit
  • Washington — Minimum Wage; Your Rights as a Worker

All changes listed are mandatory except for the minimum wage posters in South Dakota, Montana, and Washington. These states make updated minimum wage posters available, but employers are not required to post them. It’s still a good idea to make employees aware of the latest rate, however.
