For those who may operate Dunkin’ stores on federal property, associated labor costs will be rising again with the implementation of a federal employee and contractor minimum wage increase to $15 per hour no later than Sunday, January 30, 2022.  The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) released guidance last week directing all government agencies to raise their minimum wage to $15 by month’s end. Additionally, the agency points to the Executive Order issued last April by President Biden that mandated all federal contractors pay their employees a minimum of $15 per hour beginning on January 30, 2022. In its announcement, OPM also cautioned that “if any agency fails to meet the January 30 deadline, they will be required to make pay raises associated with establishing a $15 minimum wage retroactive to that date.”
