Current Bill Summary


HCS/SS/SCS/SBs 255, 249 & 279 - This act reinstates the Federal overtime standards in place before the passage of Proposition B (2006) including exemptions for firefighters, commissioned employees, and flex-time rates.

A provision is repealed that requires the minimum wage to be increased or decreased according to fluctuations in the Consumer Price Index.

Currently, employers may pay tipped employees half of the Missouri minimum wage if their total compensation, including tips, equals the Missouri minimum wage. This act allows employers to pay such employees $2.13 per hour if their total compensation, including tips, equals the Missouri minimum wage.

This act contains an emergency clause.
