Employers in California are required to display certain posters in the workplace to inform employees of their rights and protections under state and federal labor laws. Employers who fail to post required up to date California labor law posters may be subject to enforcement action by the California Labor Commissioner. These posters must be displayed in a conspicuous location where all employees can easily see them.
Labor laws change frequently, and it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure posters are up-to-date.

Here are some key points about California Labor Laws
- Minimum wage: California’s minimum wage is currently $15.00 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees, and $14.00 per hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees. Some cities in California have enacted higher minimum wage rates.
- Overtime pay: California law requires employers to pay overtime (time-and-a-half) to non-exempt employees who work more than 8 hours in a workday, more than 40 hours in a workweek, or the first 8 hours worked on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek. Double-time pay is required for hours worked beyond 12 hours in a workday or beyond 8 hours on the seventh consecutive day of work in a workweek.
- Meal and rest breaks: California law requires employers to provide non-exempt employees with a 30-minute meal break for every 5 hours worked, and a 10-minute rest break for every 4 hours worked.
- At-will employment: California is an at-will employment state, which means that employers can terminate employees at any time and for any reason (except for reasons that are prohibited by law).
- Discrimination and harassment: California law prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and other protected categories. California also has laws prohibiting sexual harassment and other forms of harassment in the workplace.
- Workers’ compensation: California requires most employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover employees who are injured on the job.
- Paid sick leave: California law requires employers to provide most employees with paid sick leave.
