Recently, California adopted two significant changes to its wage and hour laws. First, it adopted a $15 per hour minimum wage, to be phased in over several years. This past week, Governor Brown signed a bill giving farm workers overtime compensation after 8 hours per day instead of 10 hours as is currently the law. This law will also be phased in over several years.
