In 2015, Los Angeles County passed a new minimum wage law nearly identical to its City of Los Angeles counterpart. Beginning July 1, 2016, a minimum wage worker in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County will make $10.00 or $10.50 per hour, depending on the size of the business.
The minimum wage will increase every year on July 1 until it reaches $15.00 per hour in 2021 for all businesses.

* Beginning July 1, 2022, the County will adjust the minimum wage annually based on changes to the Consumer Price Index to help workers keep up with the cost of living.
To find out if your workplaces are located within the unincorporated areas covered by the L.A. County Minimum Wage, you can enter their addresses on the County’s website.
Beginning July 1, 2016, employers must display the new L.A. County Minimum Wage notice in a conspicuous place at any workplace or jobsite located in the unincorporated areas of the County where any employee works. The notice must be printed at least on 8-½“ x 14” with the font at least 10 points, and must be displayed in English, Spanish, and the primary language used by the employer to communicate with employees.
The County will release a new posting each year to reflect the current wage rate, which makes an automatic posting compliance program like the GovDocs Update Program so appealing to large employers who just want to “hit the easy button” on their posting compliance program.
By the way, employers must maintain payroll records for each employee for four years.
As large employers know, keeping up new and changing labor laws is tough enough just at the state and federal level. Now, with an increase in the number of cities and counties who have passed their own labor laws, HR professionals need help keeping track of posting requirements to keep their companies compliant nationwide.
That’s why North America’s largest employers rely on GovDocs for ongoing labor law posting compliance. We make workplace posting compliance easy with automation, innovation, and service levels that fit North America’s largest employers – including county and city labor law posting coverage.
