California Minimum Wage Poster Required
The Minimum Wage Poster is a labor law posters poster by the California Department Of Industrial Relations. This is a mandatory posting for all employers in California, and businesses who fail to comply may be subject to fines or sanctions.
This poster must be posted next to the establishment's IWC or the Industry Occupation Order. As of 2019, businesses with 26 or more employees must pay their workers no less than $12.00 per hour, or $11.00 per hour for any smaller businesses. The poster also displays the history of previous rates in the state of California. This ordinance does not apply to outside salespersons or individuals who are directly related to the employer (includes spouses). It also displays a table listing the meal and lodging rates as part of the minimum wage obligation. The poster includes information on the separability of provisions as well.
