California Minimum Wage Going Up In Some Areas

On July 1, 2017, the minimum wage will be increasing in certain cities and counties in California. Although the California minimum wage is currently $10.00 an hour for employers with 25 employees or less and $10.50 for employers with 26 employees or more, certain cities and counties have enacted their own local ordinances in order to reach the $15.00 minimum wage by the year 2022. California’s list of scheduled increases to reach the $15.00 minimum wage in the year 2022 can be found HERE. The state reminds all employers that they must post the California Minimum Wage Official Notice in a visible area for all employees to see.

Below is a list of some cities which will be experiencing a minimum wage increase. As a reminder, please check your city and county’s local ordinances to ensure minimum wage compliance.
