California Minimum Wage Goes Up to $10 on January 1, 2016

Don’t forget that the state’s minimum wage goes up to $10 per hour on January 1, 2016.  That also means that the minimum salary for exempt classification status also goes up to $41,600 (twice the state’s minimum wage) for all “white collar” exemptions (administrative, executive and professional).  While some cities have higher minimum wages, the baseline for exempt status is still set by the state’s minimum wage (not each city).  Call the Discrimination Attorneys at Factum Law Group if you have any questions.

Also keep in mind that different thresholds apply for other exemptions including commissioned salespersons (1.5x minimum wage), outside salespersons (1x minimum wage), and computer professional (currently $41.85 per hour).
