For a lot of Americans, July 4 is the date to watch out for. It means cookouts, family visits, and, most importantly, time off from work. But for others, July 1 is the date to keep an eye on. It marks the end of the fiscal year, and for some states that means wage hikes and paid sick leave requirements.
So as you load up on beer and hot dogs this weekend in preparation for the Fourth, remember that employment laws will not look the same when you sit down at your desk Monday morning.
Drum roll please...
Minimum wages will increase in the following places, effective July 1:
As for paid sick leave, here’s who’s requiring it starting July 1:
Going forward, laws requiring employers to give workers notice of their schedules to give them ample time to prepare will be more common. Already, Seattle passed an ordinance effective July 1 that will require large food and retail companies—that means 500 employees or more—to give workers at least a week’s notice of their schedule.
That requirement is likely to spread to Oregon next year, thanks to a bill the state legislature passed June 29. Gov. Kate Brown (D) told Bloomberg BNA June 28 that she intends to sign the measure, which would take effect July 1, 2018.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) signed similar legislation in May. It requires employers to give workers two weeks notice of their schedule and bans on-call scheduling. That law goes into effect this November.
