In nearly all circumstances, employers in California and San Diego are required to pay minimum wage. California minimum wage is currently:
Every January 1, these wages will increase a dollar an hour until 2023, to cap out at $15.00 per hour for all workers, regardless of how many people work for their employer.
Municipalities throughout California have different minimum wages. San Diego’s minimum wage, as of 2020, is $13.00 an hour for all employees, regardless of how many people are employed at their place of business. The minimum wage in San Diego will continue to rise along with the California minimum wage until the minimum is $15.00 per hour.
In California, any non-exempt employees are entitled to overtime pay if they work more than eight hours in a single workday or more than 40 hours in a single workweek. Employers are required to pay time and a half for any work in excess of these hours. Additionally, employees must be paid double-time pay if they work more than 12 hours in a single workday or more than eight hours on a seventh consecutive day of work.
