Key New California Laws for 2018: What Employers Should Know

By Pascal Benyamini

Governor Jerry Brown signed several laws in 2017 that will impact California employers next year. A summary of some of the key new laws is linked below, in numerical order by Assembly Bill (AB) and/or Senate Bill (SB). All of the laws outlined below are effective beginning January 1, 2018.

Initially, employers should bear in mind that the minimum wage in California is increasing to $11.00 per hour on January 1, 2018, for employers with 26 or more employees, based on previous legislation signed by Governor Brown in 2015. The minimum wage for employers with 25 or fewer employees will increase to $10.50 per hour on January 1, 2018. Also, please note that various cities and local governments in California have enacted minimum wage ordinances that exceed the state minimum wage.
