Summer is quickly approaching, and with it comes local minimum wage increases for a number of California localities. Here’s a list of localities that will have minimum wage increases effective July 1, 2021:
*The minimum wage rates for these localities will remain at $15/hour for employers with 26 or more employees, with a future increase effective July 1, 2022. The City of Alameda will also remain at its current $15/hour rate with a future increase on July 1, 2022.
Many of these local ordinances contain notice requirements. The CalChamber Store sells required posters that are compliant with various California city and county local ordinances; check the store to see if your city or county has any required posters.
Employers should review their hourly wage rates of their employees working in any local jurisdictions listed above and make any necessary adjustments by July 1 to comply. Don’t forget to pay attention to where your remote employees are located, as they very well could be subject to local minimum wage and other ordinances they may not typically be when reporting to the worksite.
