Unused exemption eliminated
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill eliminates the current exemptions from the minimum wage law that allow an employer to pay a wage that is less than the minimum wage to individuals with disabilities.  Because no public or private employer currently holds a special certificate authorizing the payment of less than the minimum wage to a person with a mental or physical disability, there is no current fiscal impact associated with eliminating the exemption.
