It’s that time of year to prepare for minimum wage increases and update workplace posters.  Beginning July 1, minimum wage rates throughout Oregon increase, to $14.00 for Portland Metro, $12.00 for Nonurban Counties, and $12.75 as Standard. (See here for descriptions of the areas in each category.)  BOLI’s 2021-2022 Commonly Required Postings in Oregon Poster, including the poster for Agricultural Workers, which include the new rates, are available here.

Don’t forget that Oregon OSHA still requires employers to post the COVID-19 Hazards Poster, which is available here. We recently discussed Oregon OSHA’s other COVID-19 rules, which will sunset when they are no longer necessary to address the COVID-19 pandemic.
