On June 13th 2015 Mayor Eric Garcetti signed into law a measure raising the citywide minimum wage to $15. Also signed into law was a supplemental ordinance that creates a new City agency, the "Wage Enforcement Division", to investigate and enforce violations of wage theft. It also establishes new regulations and penalties for all employers operating within the City of Los Angeles.
We urge small business employers to proactively review their policies, work rules, agreements and especially economic decisions that may be affected by the minimum wage increases well in advance of their effective dates.
