Cities and counties in California continue to pass local ordinances affecting businesses. The California Chamber of Commerce has designed a section on HRCalifornia.com to help CalChamber members navigate identified labor-related local ordinances, such as minimum wage and paid sick leave ordinances.
Updates on new requirements or reminders of upcoming deadlines are presented in the HRWatchdog blog.
For example, this fall, employers in the City of Berkeley will a new local ordinance and a minimum wage hike. On October 1, 2017, Berkeley’s Paid Sick Leave (PSL) ordinance goes into effect and its minimum wage rises to $13.75 per hour. The City also has issued an updated required employment poster, which includes information on the minimum wage, PSL and Berkeley’s Family Friendly and Environment Friendly Workplace.
