WHAT’S NEW FOR 2019 – INDUSTRY WAGE ORDERS UPDATED FOR CALIFORNIA MINIMUM WAGE INCREASES

Don’t Forget to Post Your New California Wage Orders

California employers must comply with one or more of the 18 California Industrial Welfare Commission’s (IWC) published “wage orders” applicable to their industry or profession. For example, Wage Order 1 applies to the manufacturing industry; Wage Order 4 to professional, technical, clerical, mechanical and similar occupations; Wage Order 9 to the transportation industry; and Wage Order 16 to construction, drilling, logging and mining occupations.

The wage orders contain regulations on minimum and overtime wages, meal and rest periods, record-keeping requirements, exemptions from overtime, and other working conditions.

The California Department of Industrial Relations has updated Wage Orders 1 through 16 to include 2019’s increased state minimum wage and meal and lodging rates. Wage Order 17 (miscellaneous employees) has not been changed.

After determining which wage order(s) apply to a business and its employees, employers must post the most recent version(s) at the workplace or on the job site along with the California Minimum Wage Order where employees can read them easily.
