Georgia Wage and Hour Laws
Georgia’s minimum wage law follows the federal minimum wage which is currently $7.25 per hour.
There is no state-mandated overtime law in Georgia for private employers. Covered employers in Georgia should follow the federal overtime laws as prescribed in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
Georgia requires employers—except those in the farming, sawmill, and turpentine industries—to pay all employees all wages due on paydays selected by the employer. Paydays must be divided between at least two (2) equal pay periods per month.
This rule does not apply to company officials, superintendents, or other heads or subheads of departments who are paid a stipulated salary. They may be paid monthly or annually.
Taxable Wage Base ($000s): 9,500
New Employer Rate (% Taxable Wages) 2.7**
Georgia Income Tax Withholding
Georgia requires employers to withhold state income tax from employees' wages and remit the amounts withheld to the Department of Revenue.
Georgia residents working outside the state are exempt from Georgia income tax withholding if their compensation is subject to withholding in that state.
