South Dakota minimum wage will increase in 2021

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The minimum wage in South Dakota will increase from $9.30 per hour to $9.45 per hour beginning January 1, 2021. The minimum wage rate for tipped employees will also increase on January 1, from $4.65 per hour to $4.725 per hour.

South Dakota’s non-tipped minimum wage rate is adjusted annually, increasing at the same rate as the cost of living as measured by the Consumer Price Index published by the U.S. Department of Labor. The amount of the increase is rounded to the nearest 5 cents. Wage adjustments are announced by the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation each year no later than October 15.

Posting. The state does not require employers to post notice but does provide an annual poster for informational purposes only. This optional poster has been updated for 2021 and is available in English and in Spanish. (South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation, Employment Laws, South Dakota Minimum Wage Information).
