Important Employment Law Statutes

Whether you're on the employee or the employer side of the business, it's important to have a basic understanding of some of the state's more notable employment laws so that you can understand your rights. These laws govern a variety of different things, from wage requirements and legal holidays to civil rights laws and discrimination statutes. If you're working in the state of Arizona, these are few important laws you should be aware of:

  • Beginning January 1st, 2019, the minimum wage for all employees in Arizona will be $11 an hour. The state's minimum wage rate is linked to a Consumer Price Index, which is intended to raise the rate to keep up with inflation.
  • Under current Arizona law, employers may pay tipped employees less than the minimum wage, as long as the employees earn enough in tips to make up the difference. This practice is known as "tip credit," and is authorized by state law.
  • Arizona discrimination laws currently protect a variety of different classes, including race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age (40 or older), citizenship status, and genetic information. This means that no employer is allowed to discriminate based on any of these categories.

While these are just a few of the laws that are important to remember, there is a long list of others that can have a serious impact on businesses and individuals alike. That's why the employment law attorneys at Law Offices of Vescio & Seifert, P.C. are here to help provide excellent legal counsel and representation to residents across the state who are facing complex employment law issues.
