Child Care Payroll: Minimum Wage Rises July 24
The U.S. Federal Minimum Wage rises July 24, 2009 to $7.25 per hour. If your State Minimum Wage is already higher than that it won’t directly affect your child care business. For those of you who need to implement the change you may find that some employees will have part of their next paycheck at the old hourly rate and part of it at the new rate.
Which Employees does this Effect?
If you’re already using Procare as your Daycare Payroll Software it’s easy to get a list of all employees and their hourly rates. Then quickly scan the list to see if any staff members are currently below the new minimum wage.
- Go to General Reports > Employee Data > Report Letter C – Time Card.
- Choose Time Card Summary with Dollars.
Note: You’ll need to choose a Date Range – but since you don’t care about specific dates for this report it doesn’t really matter what you choose.
