The 2023 minimum wage increase also changes how much your workers must earn before they can be held to non-compete agreements.

  • Employee threshold: $116,593.18
  • Independent contractor threshold: $291,482.95

Also, an employee’s outside employment or self-employment cannot be restricted unless they are paid two times the minimum wage, meaning that threshold is $31.48 per hour/$65,478.40 per year.
