The Department of Labor recently announced that the federal minimum wage for contracts covered by Executive Order 13658 will increase in 2018 to $10.35 per hour. The minimum hourly wage that generally must be paid to tipped employees covered by that Executive Order and performing work on or in connection with covered contracts will be $7.25 for 2018. Contracts which were awarded on or after January 1, 2015, or were through bilateral negotiations on or after January 1, 2015 (a) renewed, (b) extended or (c) amended pursuant to a modification that is outside the scope of the original contract are subject to the Order. Various exemptions apply, such as for ski areas, so each contractor, including all concessioners, needs to determine whether its particular contract is covered by the Executive Order.
