$10.50 - New Minimum Wage – Effective 7/1/2016 in
Los Angeles City and LA County Unincorporated Areas
You may be aware of the newest minimum wage requirement set to be effective on 7/1 this year. But do you know who is affected? Which areas are being applied to? What does Unincorporated Areas mean and where are those areas?
I raised these questions here because one of my clients, a business owner, asked me anxiously because she is confused. Then I talked with my other clients and even my CPA, the common response is most people are confused.
Effective July 1, Los Angeles City would enforce the new minimum wage requirement: $10.50 per hour. This new requirement would apply to employers who employ 26 or more employees in 2015. For those who employ 25 or less employees in 2015 would receive a one year grace period to implement the new requirement. For details, please refer to the LA City Ordinance No. 184320 at the below link.
