The new year is approaching quickly. And with it, new employment wage laws. 

Two classifications were recently announced by the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) affecting rate changes for computer software employee exemption (from $43.58 to $45.41) and the licensed physician and surgeon exemption (from 82.72 from $79.39). The new rates take effect January 1, 2019. 
Rates are determined by the California Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers. 

Also, recall that California's minimum wage will increase on January 1, 2019, affecting the commonly used professional, executive and administrative exemptions. Individuals in these classifications must be paid at least two times the state minimum wage, in addition to meeting all other legal requirements for this exemption. More information is available through the Cal Chamber of Commerce report,  2019 Minimum Wage Hike Brings Changes for California Employers 

In January and February, the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Committee will be reviewing the 2019 business laws so that our members will have the tools and resources to ensure compliance with state and federal law. 

Sincerely,


Rorie Johnston
CEO

ESCONDIDO LOCAL NEWS
SD's Booming Manufacturing Sector...
...Is Brought To You By Water

While San Diego is perhaps most famous for its beaches and laid-back lifestyle, it's also home to more than 100,000 manufacturing jobs across more than 300 industries. In fact, San Diego County's manufacturing sector supports the region's economic prosperity by delivering products that put San Diego on the map.

And just about every one of the region's 4,000 manufacturing facilities relies on safe and reliable water supplies from the San Diego County Water Authority and its 24 member agencies.  That fundamental resource is critical in a region that only receives only about 10 inches of rain a year -  not even close to the amount of water it takes to sustain a $220 billion economy. Through its Brought to  You by Water program...click here to read more.
UCSD Conducts Gig Economy Survey
Online Participants Needed 

Do you drive for Lyft or Uber? Do you sell products on eBay or do independent contract
work? We're looking for anyone who does non-traditional work to participate in our study!

This study is a partnership between the UC San Diego Extension and the Centers of Excellence for Labor Market Research.

We want to evaluate non-traditional work in San Diego. Many have dubbed this work the gig economy, where people complete short-term work contracts rather than exclusively work in full-time jobs.
How big is the gig economy? What is it like to work in it? We want to know!
