What is the minimum wage in California?
As of January 1, 2017, the minimum wage in California is $10.00 per hour for employers with 25 or less employees and $10.50 for employers with 26 or more employees. However, depending on what city you live in, you may be entitled to more. For example, in the City of Los Angeles, effective July 1, 2017, the minimum wage for employers with 26 or more employees goes up to $12.00 per hour and for 25 or fewer goes up to $10.50. Please see our Resources page for more information. The law is constantly changing and evolving, so you should contact an employment law attorney in Burbank to discuss your specific situation. We offer complimentary case evaluations.
Can I be forced to work for less than the minimum wage in California?
What if I get paid tips too? Can my boss use that amount as credit toward the minimum wages?
No. Whether you work at a restaurant, hair salon, nail salon, car wash, or any other business where tips are given, your employer cannot use your tips as a credit toward its obligation to pay you the minimum wage.
What if my employer retaliated against me because I questioned him about not being paid the minimum wage?
If your employer discriminates or retaliates against you (such as by terminating or demoting you) because you questioned them about not being paid the minimum wage or because you filed or threatened to file a claim with the Labor Commissioner, then you can file a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit.
