Any student employee who earns less than .15 per hour prior to December 31, will receive an increase to .15 per hour effective with the payroll beginning on December 31, 2016.
As a public educational institution, Wright State University is determined to establish and maintain an environment of academic excellence.
The state minimum wage is tied to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Ohio’s minimum wage is scheduled to increase on January 1, 2017 from .10 per hour to .15 per hour.
Those Targets are available for public comment through August 4, 2017.Implicit in that determination is the recognition that all members of the university community must have an equal opportunity to develop and utilize their full potential.Accordingly, it is the university's policy to provide equal opportunity to all employees, students, and applicants for employment or admission, without regard to their race, sex, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, or sexual orientation.For example, smokers can be required to pay more for their company health insurance and some localities have banned e-cigarettes at work.Non-smokers also have legal rights that relate to smoking and smoking areas in the workplace.
