MINIMUM WAGE INCREASED TO $10.00/HOUR
Effective January 1, 2016, the California minimum wage will increase to $10.00 per hour. Employers are required to provide employees receiving an increased hourly wage with a written notice of the change within seven (7) days of the effective date of the change. This notice may be given to each employee via a Labor Code 2810.5 form (available online at www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/LC_2810.5_Notice.pdf), through a written notice explaining the change, or through a wage statement reflecting the change provided within seven (7) days of the effective date. Employers who are not providing paychecks/wage statements by January 7, 2015, should provide their employees with a separate written notice informing them of the increase in their hourly wage.
