AMENDED MINIMUM WAGE NOTICE MUST BE POSTED BY JULY 1, 2014 « Law Offices of Timothy Bowles | Top Employment Law Firm in Los Angeles


As recently covered in our California Minimum Wage Increasing blog, California’s minimum will rise to $9.00 an hour on July 1, 2014.

Also by July 1, California employers must prominently post the new Division of Labor Standards Enforcement Minimum Wage Order (MW-2014) specifying this $9.00 per hour minimum requirement as well as the $10.00 per hour minimum that begins January 1, 2016.

California employers must conspicuously display all such mandatory state and federal labor posters and notices where all employees may view them. Even companies with only one employee must display certain notices. Companies must post a separate set of these notices in each business location. Several of these employer postings must also be displayed where job applicants can read them.
