California’s minimum wage will increase on January 1, 2020 to $13 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees and $12 for employers with 25 or fewer employees. 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.
If your employees are working in a city our county that has a higher minimum wage (San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, or Los Angeles to name a few), you are responsible for paying the highest applicable wage. What does “working” mean? It means your employees are spending 2 or more hours in a city.
