While many cities across California increase their minimum wage requirements on January 1 of each year, there are several cities that do not implement the minimum wage increase until July 1. If you have not already checked, Employers should confirm their local city ordinances relating to minimum wage hikes to ensure you are paying your employees accurately. These changes must be put in writing to your employees, the increased payment must be begin on July 1, 2022 and properly reflected on their paycheck. Keep in mind too, that employers are also required to place a minimum wage poster in the workplace that clearly identifies the minimum wage in the city in which their employees are working.
For example, if you are in San Francisco, the minimum wage beginning July 1, 2022, increases to $16.99. Other cities increasing their minimum wage requirements on July 1 include Berkeley ($16.99), Emeryville ($17.68) and Los Angeles ($15.96).
