One of the most difficult things for human resource and absence management professionals to do is to keep up with changing state and local laws.  Below is a brief summary of some new laws of interest:

California Minimum Wage Reminder

A number of jurisdictions in California are increasing the minimum wage effective July 1, 2017, including Emeryville, Los Angeles (City and County), Pasadena, Sacramento, San Francisco and San Leandro.  Most of these increases have been scheduled for some time and official notices already include the required information.  For example, here is a link to the City of Los Angeles poster:  http://wagesla.lacity.org/sites/g/files/wph471/f/MW%20PSL%20poster%20letter%20size_2.pdf

Arizona

The Industrial Commission has issued new guidance on Arizona’s paid sick leave law that starts July 1, 2017. An employer’s non-Arizona employees are not included in an employer’s count of total employees for purposes of the paid sick time law. Paid sick time must be carried over to the following year, subject to usage limitations based on employer size.
