In 2016, Governor Brown signed SB 3, a bill that will increase the minimum wage in California to $15 per hour by 2022. The governor's action makes California the first state in the nation to commit to raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour statewide.
Large businesses with 26 or more employees begin complying January 1, 2017 and will reach $15 per hour in 2022. Small businesses with 25 or fewer employees are not required to begin the scheduled increases until 2018 and will have until 2023 to reach the $15-per-hour rate.
Employers need to prepare for the minimum wage increase and examine other pay practices that might be affected by the increase.
