What is a Wage Order?

Wage Orders regulate wages, hours and working conditions. Employers must adhere to The Industrial Welfare Commission (IWC) Wage Order and California labor laws applicable to their business or industry.

What Does This Mean for You?

Employers are required to post these revisions in areas that are used by employees and where they can be easily read during the workday.

Wage orders are included as a part of GovDocs California Posting Packages that also include all postings required for California employers.
