Special Membership Offer for June 2021

Summer brings sun, fun, and good times. On July 1, 2021, it also brings local minimum wage increases for a number of California localities. Employers should review their hourly wage rates for employees working in any local jurisdictions affected by these increases, and make any necessary adjustments by July 1, 2021, to remain in compliance. (Note that many of these local ordinances contain notice requirements.)


We know keeping track of yearly and mid-year changes can be difficult. That’s where CalChamber can help. The HRCalifornia website was created by CalChamber, so we can help our members easily navigate — and comply with — California’s complex employment and labor laws. In fact, the value of a Preferred Membership can be measured in the time saved by using HRCalifornia’s tools, like the Local Ordinances Wizard, which helps you determine the local ordinances and labor law posters that apply to your business or locations.


As a Preferred Member, you’ll gain access to tools that make it easy to locate which ordinances affect your business.


  • Local Ordinances ExplainedThis section explains information on local ordinances for cities across northern and southern California.
  • Local Ordinances WizardUse this wizard to determine the local ordinances and labor law posters that apply to your business or location(s).
  • Local Ordinances MapWe designed this section to help you navigate identified labor-related local ordinances for Northern and Southern California, such as minimum wage and paid sick leave ordinances.
