Workers Who Could be Impacted: Workers Throughout California
On January 1, 2021, California’s minimum wage increased to $14 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees, and $13 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees.
According to the California Department of Industrial Relations “California is the first state in the nation to commit to raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour statewide by 2022 for large businesses, and by 2023 for small businesses.” SB 3 (Leno, Chapter 4, Statutes of 2016) “increases the minimum wage over time consistent with economic expansion, while providing safety valves to pause wage increases if negative economic or budgetary conditions emerge.”
On January 1, 2022, California’s minimum wage is scheduled increase to $15 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees, and $14 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees.
On January 1, 2023, California’s minimum wage is scheduled to remain $15 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees, and increase to $15 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees.
We hope these updates are helpful to you.
