The District of Columbia Minimum Wage Poster is a labor law posters poster by the District Of Columbia Office Of Human Rights. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in District Of Columbia, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.

This law poster must be placed in a conspicuous area where all employees of the District of Columbia may easily view it. This poster includes past, current, as well as future minimum wage rates, as well as information in regards to overtime pay, exceptions, and other provisions. Rates are distributed depending on if the employee obtains gratuities. For instance, an employee who does not obtain gratuities in the 2019 year must be paid no less than $14.00 per hour. An employee who obtains gratuities in the 2019 year, however, must be paid no less than $4.45 each hour. Additional information about this law includes the rate policy for tipped employees, deductions, meals, uniforms, maintaining records, and others listed. To file a complaint, it is encouraged to contact the Department of Employment Services.

MINIMUM WAGE EXCEPTIONS
The minimum wage provision does not apply in instances where other laws or regulations establish minimum wage rates for 
the following:

minimum wage exception. Newly hired persons 18 years of age or older must be paid the established District of 
Columbia minimum wage immediately upon hire.	
7. 	The minimum wage provision does not apply to persons:
a. 	employed in a bona fide executive, administrative, professional, computer, or outside sales capacity; or	
b.  	engaged in the delivery of newspapers to the home of the consumer.

NOTE: The Car Wash Employee Overtime Amendment Act of 2012, effective May 31, 2012, removed the overtime 
exception for employees of a car wash. Car wash employees are entitled to overtime for all hours worked over a forty-
hour workweek. The United States Department of Labor’s Home Care Rule, effective November 12, 2015, became 
applicable to direct care workers employed by agencies and other third-party employers. Direct care workers are 
workers who provide home care services, such as certified nursing assistants, home health aides, personal care aides,

OTHER PROVISIONS
Additional wages are due to employees for split shifts, travel expenses, and tools. Other deductions may be taken for
