Mandatory Change to California’s Minimum Wage Notice

Minimum Wage (Mandatory)

The California Department of Industrial Relations has released their Minimum Wage notice. On April 4, 2016, the Governor of California signed legislation that effective January 1, 2017 the minimum wage for California employers with 26 or more employees will be $10.50 per hour while employers with 25 or fewer employees will be $10.00 per hour. Additionally, the minimum wage rate for the year 2018 has been added to the notice, $11.00 for employers with 26 or more employees and $10.50 for employers with 25 or fewer employees. The rates for the Meals and Lodging section of the notice have also been updated to reflect the rate change for the years 2017 and 2018. If credit is used for meals or lodging to meet part of the employer’s minimum wage obligation, the amounts so credited may not be more than the amounts listed for meals or lodging in the notice. Lastly, a web address has been added to receive additional information on California’s Minimum Wage Law.

Effective Date for Both Notices: 1/1/2017

The California All-In-One State and Federal Poster has been updated to include these new mandatory changes on the required posting.
