Richmond, Calif. 2016 Minimum Wage Increase

$11.52 per hour in 2016 for Richmond, California minimum wage workers. Revised posting required.

Beginning January 1, 2016, employers in Richmond, California will need to give their minimum wage workers a pay boost. The new rate of $11.52 per hour represents a 16 percent increase over the previous rate – and it’s not done increasing.

The Richmond Minimum Wage Ordinance establishes a $13.00 per hour minimum wage for 2018 with the rate being adjusted for inflation beginning 2019, subject to changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The City would announce any increases to the rate by October 1 each year.

If an employer pays at least $1.50 per hour towards an employee’s medical benefits plan, then the employer can deduct the $1.50 from the minimum wage amount.
