If you own a business in Los Angeles there is a difference in the minimum wage requirements based on how many employees you have.
That’s right. Besides having to navigate the difference between Federal minimum wage, State minimum wage, City minimum wage you also have criteria specific to how many employees you have.
Currently (as of July 2017) the minimum wage in LA for employers with 25 or less employees is $10.50 an hour. For employers with 26 or more employees it is $12.00 an hour.
But don’t get to attached to those numbers. The rate is scheduled to change every year until 2021 when both larger and smaller employers in Los Angeles will be mandated to pay a minimum wage of $15 an hour.
To help you stay compliant we put together this info-graphic that shows the schedule rate changes for both larger and smaller Los Angeles employers for the next 4 years.
Just be sure to check before every July (the month the yearly rate change goes into effect) to make sure you stay compliant.
