Hours & Pay Regulations
There is no Pennsylvania labor law which requires an employer to pay an employee not to work. Benefits like sick leave, vacation pay and severance pay are payments to an employee not to be at work. Therefore, an employer only has to pay these benefits if the employer has the policy to pay such benefits or a contract with you to pay for these benefits. An employer must follow its own rules for these kinds of payments. There may also be federal requirements governing leave that has to be provided under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Family Medical Leave Act.
Effective July 1, 2021, the minimum wage of Pennsylvania is $12.00 per hour.
The above information on minimum wages might not be up to date & subject to change. Kindly access the DOL website for the current rates.
