In 2016, Arizona voters passed Proposition 206, increasing the state-wide minimum wage and mandating paid sick time for all employees.
Employers who pay tipped employees are allowed to pay up to $3 less than minimum wage.
The initiative also guaranteed 40 hours of annual paid sick time to employees of businesses with 15 or more employees and 24 hours to those of businesses with less than 15 employees. The measure entitled employees to accrue one hour of paid sick time for every 30 hours worked. The measure permitted earned paid sick time to be utilized for an employee’s medical care, an employee’s need to care for a family member, a public health emergency, or addressing domestic violence.
