Special Minimum Wage Rules
Workers whose disabilities impair their ability to perform their work may be employed under a special minimum wage license issued by the Department of Workforce Development.
The employer must complete an Application for a Special Minimum Wage License in order to be licensed.
The rates paid must reflect the productivity of the worker compared to the productivity of a worker not disabled for similar work, and to the wages paid to experienced workers performing the same or similar work in the vicinity.
The employer shall inform orally and in writing, each worker with a disability, and parent and/or guardian if appropriate, of the terms of the special minimum wage license under which the worker is employed.
Review Process or Complaints
A request for reconsideration or review under this law must be filed within 60 days after learning of the action.
