What California Minimum Wage Increases Mean for Your White Collar Employees

Edgeworth Economics

By 2022, the California minimum wage will be $15, and it will increase annually after that based on inflation. The California white collar exemption requires that employees be paid twice the minimum wage. As a result, some employees who pass the duties test will soon be ineligible for the white collar exemption based on their salaries. Employers should review all jobs under the white collar exemption to ensure they remain above the threshold as the salary test level increases. Edgeworth's labor and employment experts have compiled a guide to the factors employers should consider when reviewing jobs with salaries close to the threshold.
