Los Angeles Minimum Wage Violations Attorneys
Our Goal is to Protect All of Your Rights Under the Law
Employers in the state of California must pay their employees at least the minimum wage for all of the hours they work. As of January 1, 2021, California’s minimum wage is $13 for employers with 25 or fewer employees and $14 for employers with 26 or more employees. However, many cities and counties in California have established minimum wage laws that pay employees more than what is required by the state. For example, the City of Los Angles has set its minimum wage at $15 per hour, while San Francisco and Berkeley have set the minimum wage at $16.07.
