Employee Classification

To determine which Wage Order covers an employee or group of employees, you must first determine if your business is covered by one of the industry orders. If it is, the industry order covers all classifications of employees regardless of the kind of work they do, unless they are specifically exempted by the applicability section of that order. Industry orders include all but Wage Order 4, Wage Order 14, Wage Order 15 and Wage Order 17, which are occupation orders, and the Minimum Wage Order.
