Hey everyone this is Ted Ravan from Ravan law and welcome to another Ted Talk Tuesday.
Today I’ll be talking about an employment topic that not everyone knows about minimum salary in California. Most people are aware of the minimum wage per hour, but not everyone knows that minimum salary. In California employees who are salaried are entitled to a minimum salary. That means that if you are a salaried employee, and your employer is paying you less than a certain amount per year, then you have a claim against your employer.
The minimum salary in California changes every year and also differentiate by the number of employees that your employer has. As of 2021, the minimum salary for an employee working for an employer with 26 or more employees is $58,240 per year, while an employee working for an employer with 25 or fewer employees is $54,080 per year. If you’re a salaried employee in California and you think that an employer is underpaying you, you should contact an experienced attorney immediately. And of course, if you have any questions about this topic or any of the other topics I’ve talked about, don’t forget to call me at (888) 6-THE-LAW.
