Proposition 206 raised the new minimum wage requirement to $10.00 per hour effective January 1, 2017; the Act requires employers to provide earned paid sick time benefits to all Arizona employees effective July 1, 2017. The Industrial Commission of Arizona was given the authority to enforce and implement the Act.
Supplemental Administrative Rules are currently in process to address the changes to both the minimum wage and earned paid sick time provision
