NORTH CAROLINA MINIMUM WAGE The minimum wage in North Carolina is currently .25 an hour.Employers doing business in North Carolina are required to pay at least .25 per hour to all employees (agricultural and domestic employees are subject to the federal minimum wage).Employers are permitted to take a credit, for a certain amount of tips earned by their employees, toward the employers’ payment of the minimum wage. § 95-25.3(f) provides that “tips earned by a tipped employee may be counted as wages permitted in section 3(m) of the Fair Labor Standards Act.” Under Section 3(m) of the FLSA, an employer is allowed to count as wages a portion of the tips that a tipped employee receives – and this credit is equal to the minimum wage established under Section 6(a)(1) of the FLSA and the amount the cash wage required to be paid such an employee on the date of the enactment of this Section 3(m) of the FLSA (.13).However, for an employer to be able to count tips as wages and take a tip credit towards the minimum wage, the state labor law requires that tipped employees be notified in advance and be permitted to retain all tips, and requires that the employer maintains accurate and complete records of tips received by each employee and such tips must be certified by tipped employees monthly or for each pay period. This will result in a three-step change to the cash wage required for tipped employees.In North Carolina, employers are required to pay the higher of the state or federal minimum wages.
So, the minimum wage employers are required to pay their employees in North Carolina remained at .15 per hour until July 24, 2008, when it increased to .55 per hour.CTNC partnered with Foothills Conservancy of NC to conserve the iconic Wildacres Retreat.The 1,000 acre property contains five miles of streams and six miles of hiking trails below the dramatic Deerlick Gap Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
