California employers, it may be time once again to update your payroll. On July 1, 2018, the minimum wage increased in many cities in California, including Los Angeles.

The statewide minimum wage increases every year on January 1, until it reaches $15.00/hour on January 1, 2022 for employers with 26 or more employees. The increase is delayed one year for employers with 25 or fewer employees. Beginning on January 1, 2019, the California minimum wage will be $11.00/hour for employers with 1-25 employees and $12.00/hour for employers with 26 or more employees.

However, there are many local wage ordinances in California where the minimum wage is higher than the state requirement. Below is a link that for the list of cities where the minimum wage increased on July 1, 2018.
