California’s Minimum Wage Increase

California’s Minimum Wage Increase

On July 1, 2014, California’s minimum wage increased to $9 per hour from the existing minimum wage of $8 per hour. This is the first increase to the state minimum wage since January 1, 2008. The minimum wage will increase a second time to $10 per hour on January 1, 2016.

For our clients currently using our payroll platform, make sure that you update the rates of pay that are currently below the minimum wage on the day required. Rates left unchanged that fall below the new minimum will be automatically updated.

The increase in minimum wage also raises the minimum salary level for exempt employees. The salary level will increase to $3,120.00 per month as the minimum salary required for an exempt employee.

Employers will need to review the salary level for those that currently fall below the above salary. Should you have any questions regarding the upcoming requirement, please email the Human Resource Department of OmegaComp HR or call us at (888) 540-0752 or mail to: humanresources@omegaondemand.com.
