Most employees in Washington Township, New Jersey are covered by the New Jersey State Wage and Hour Law and the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. While the FLSA mandates that employers pay at least a minimum wage of $7.25 per hour for each hour worked, the statutory minimum wage in New Jersey is higher at $10 per hour as of July 1, 2019. This means that covered employers must pay their eligible employees at least $10 per hour since the state’s minimum wage is higher than the federal amount.

Special rules apply for workers who receive tipped wages. If you are paid a tipped wage, your hourly wages and tips must equal at least $10 per hour when they are combined. If you are a non-exempt worker, you are also entitled to be paid overtime pay at one-and-one-half times your regular hourly rate for every hour that you work above 40 during a workweek.
