In California, state law requires employers to pay workers a minimum wage, currently imposed at $9 hourly (as at July 01, 2014). The minimum wage is variable, and may increase as a result of new federal or state law.
Certain types of employees, however, are not covered by the minimum-wage law. These include:
- Outside salespersons
- Immediate family members of the employer
- Specific apprentices
- Disabled workers of non-profit organizations
The minimum wage cannot be waived or disregarded even in a collective bargaining agreement. A violation of them minimum wage law can expose employers to legal action which can be time-consuming and expensive.
