Did you know that the Annual Minimum Wage, Tip and Overtime adjustment season began October 2018? Some California cities and counties are announcing their 2019 rates NOW.

Rate Change Examples Below:

California: State law provides that certain computer software employees, as well as licensed physicians and surgeons, are exempt from state overtime requirements if they receive a minimum hourly, monthly, or yearly rate, which is determined annually based on cost-of-living changes.

  1. Effective 1-1-19: the computer software employee minimum hourly rate will increase from $43.58 to $45.41 per hour; the minimum monthly salary amount will increase from $7,565.85 to $7,883.62, and the minimum annual salary amount will increase from $90,790.07 to $94,603.25. For licensed physicians and surgeons, the minimum hourly pay rate will increase from $79.39 to $82.72.
  2. Mountain View, California: The minimum wage will increase from $15.00 to $15.65/hour on 1-1-19.
  3. Sunnyvale, California: The minimum wage will increase from $15.00 to $15.65 per hour on January 1, 2019. On 10-30-18, the City Council voted to amend its ordinance to cap the amount of annual adjustments at five percent. Because $.65/hr. is less than five percent, the amendments will not impact the 2019 adjustment.

No-Cal’s San Francisco Bay Area – Bay Area (of Laws):

  1. The Alameda City Council adopted a citywide minimum wage, which, effective July 1, 2019, will be $13.50 per hour, increasing to $15.00 per hour on 7-1-20, with annual adjustments based on cost-of-living increases beginning 7-1- 22.
