One way in which SR Holguin, PC ensures our clients and their members stay informed is by keeping you updated on recent developments relating to workers’ rights. Today’s updates come following the July 1, 2021 Unincorporated Los Angeles County Minimum Wage Increase.

Workers Who Could be Impacted: Workers Throughout Unincorporated LA County

On July 1, 2021, Unincorporated Los Angeles County’s minimum wage increased to $15 per hour. This applies to employees who perform at least two hours of work in a particular week within unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County regardless of immigration or work status and regardless of the size of the employer. 

In 2015, the LA County Board of Supervisors passed an Ordinance codified as LA County Code of Ordinances Chapter 8.100 that progressively increases the minimum wage in Unincorporated LA County annually. 

Going forward, pursuant to the Ordinance, “[b]eginning on July 1, 2022, the minimum wage will increase annually based on the Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W) for the Los Angeles metropolitan area (Los Angeles-Riverside-Orange County, CA), which is published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Beginning in 2022, and continuing each year thereafter, on January 1 the CEO shall determine the adjusted rates which shall take effect on July 1 of that year and publish a bulletin announcing the adjusted rates.”

We hope these updates are helpful to you.
