On July 1, 2017, the minimum wage for work performed in Flagstaff increased to $10.50 per hour, in accordance with Ordinance 2017-08 and Title 15-01 of the Municipal Code.
The new minimum wage law will be enforced by the City’s Office of Labor Standards. Employers are required to post notices in their workplaces and notify employees of the new minimum wage, their rights under Title 15-01, including the right to be free of retaliation for raising minimum wage issues.
Employees who feel they have not been paid appropriately, or have been retaliated against for exercising their rights under Title 15-01, may file a complaint with the Office of Labor Standards. The City will investigate possible violations of the minimum wage law, will have access to employee payroll records, and will enforce violations of the minimum wage requirements.
