© 2022 American Payroll Institute, Inc. Local Minimum Wage Rate Changes Effective July 1 Many cities and counties have enacted their own minimum wage laws and ordinances in the absence of legislation to increase the federal minimum wage ($7.25 an hour). Several localities have minimum wage rates that increased July 1 or are otherwise scheduled to increase mid- year (this updates APA’s Guide to State Payroll Laws, §1.1). In California, local minimum wage increases also impact garnishment limits for employees working in those locations (see APA’s Guide to State Payroll Laws, §7.1). In parts of California without a local minimum wage, the state minimum wage rates for large and small employers apply. The following chart provides city and county minimum wage rates and tip credit amounts that changed effective July 1, 2022 (unless otherwise indicated). Definitions are included in the footnotes. State minimum wage rates that increased mid-year were published in PAYSTATE UPDATE, Issue 13, Vol. 24.
