New Jersey employers are required to pay their workers the state minimum wage.

If you work more than 40 hours per week and are a non-exempt worker, your employer must pay you overtime compensation for each hour that you work beyond 40 in a week. If you are paid a tipped wage, the combination of your tips and hourly wages must be at least the minimum wage.
