California Free Printable Labor Law Posters Posters California Minimum Wage Poster Required

 Minimum Wage Poster PDF

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.

The California minimum wage poster is a mandatory posting for all employers. As of 2024, businesses must pay their workers no less than $16.00 per hour. This poster must be posted next to the establishment's IWC, or the "Industry Occupation Order".

In 2024, special higher minimum wages were also implemented for fast food restaurant employers (effective April 1 2024), and healthcare facility employers (effective June 1 2024).

In previous years, companies with 25 or fewer employees were eligible to pay a lower minimum wage rate. As of 2023, this is no longer the case, and all employers must pay the same minimum wage regardless of number of employees.

The poster also displays the history of previous rates in the state of California, and a table listing permissible meal and lodging credits rates as part of the minimum wage obligation.

Note that California's minimum wage order does does not apply to outside salespersons or individuals who are directly related to the employer (including spouses).

It should also be noted that a growing number of cities and counties in California, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego, have their own minimum wage ordinances, and may require their own local minimum wage poster.
