The Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (“DLSE” or “Labor Commissioner”) Enforcement Policies and Interpretations Manual (“Enforcement Manual”) summarizes the policies and interpretations which DLSE has followed and continues to follow. The Enforcement Manual was first released in 2002 and updated periodically. The DLSE revised sections of the Enforcement Manual in August 2019. To access the Enforcement Manual online, click here. The updated pages are identified by a notation of “August, 2019” in the footer.
In California, all employers must meet workplace posting obligations. The Department of Industrial Relations (“DIR”) requires employers to post information related to wages, hours and working conditions in an area frequented by employees where it may be easily read during the workday. The Industrial Welfare Commission (“IWC”) Wage Orders regulate the wages hours and working conditions and are numbered by industry or occupation group.
Employers should post the most current applicable Wage Order(s) in an area frequented by employees. To access the updated Wage Orders online, click here. To determine which Wage Order(s) applies to your business, click here.
