California Minimum Wage
On January 1, 2016, the California hourly minimum wage increased to $10 and is expected to further increase to $15 per hour by 2022. The wage increases are aimed at improving the earnings of about 43% of the California state’s workforce who currently earn less than $15 an hour.
Wage and hour laws prohibit the payment of wages below the hourly minimum currently in force. But labor rules in the implementation of wage and hour laws are often complex and can lead to confusing interpretations of the various laws on employee compensation and benefits. Adding to the confusion is the exclusion of a class of workers referred to as independent contractors, who are not entitled to certain benefits under existing labor laws.
If you experience any underpayment or do not enjoy any of the mandatory benefits provided for workers and employees in California, it’s best to speak to an experienced wage and hour law attorney immediately about your situation. Depending on the circumstances of your employment or engagement with a company, you may be entitled to certain rights mandated by federal and state laws.
In Glendale, California, the experienced attorneys at the law offices of Anthony Choe have helped hundreds of clients obtain employee benefits that they are legally entitled to receive.
