Oregon's minimum wage is increasing effective July 1, 2016. The law creates a tiered wage floor based on three zones around the state, as we previously discussed here. On June 15, 2016, in response to comments from an advisory group and other Oregonians, the Bureau of Labor and Industries published new minimum wage rules related to the increase. The rules cover such issues as an employee working in multiple geographic areas during the course of a work period. The rules can be found here.
