LEGAL UPDATE: AZ Supreme Court To Explain Why They Allowed Minimum Wage Increase To Go Into Effect

Tomorrow, the Arizona Supreme Court will issue its opinion explaining why it permitted the minimum wage increase to go into effect in January. The challenge to the voter-passed initiative was brought by several Chambers of Commerce in Arizona, the Arizona Restaurant Association and others.

The Supreme Court denied a request for an emergency stay to keep the $10/hour minimum wage from going into effect on New Year's, then unanimously rejected the Chambers' action entirely in March, promising an opinion at a later date.

The Supreme Court announced this morning that that later date is here, and that the opinion will be released at 10a.m. on Wednesday.

The initiative also put into law allowing employees to accrue paid sick leave.
