California employers have a tough time staying on top of ever-changing state employment laws. Throw local ordinances into the mix, and the task becomes even harder. But the fact is that many localities have taken matters into their own hands and enacted minimum wage or paid sick leave (PSL) laws that exceed state requirements.
Multiple localities already have minimum wage ordinances in effect. Several jurisdictions, such as Los Angeles, San Diego and others, recently added their own local ordinances. Check with your local city government on whether a local minimum wage ordinance might apply to your workforce.
