Exempt Employee Minimum Salary Increases for 2017

Humboldt County employers must remember that with California’s minimum wage increase on January 1, 2017, the corresponding base minimum annual salary to qualify any employee as exempt from overtime has a corresponding increase.  As always, to qualify for exempt status, employees must make at least twice the minimum wage on an annual basis.  If you have any questions about whether your employees qualify as exempt, please contact an experienced employment law attorney.
