January 1, 2022: New minimum wage requirements, increases for CA, some cities

The minimum wage for a large employer with 26 or more employees in California will increase from $14 per hour to $15 per hour, and employers with 25 or fewer employees will increase from $13 per hour to $14 per hour on Jan. 1, 2022. These increases effect both hourly and salaried employees. Some cities and counties have their own ordinances beyond what is required by state law - new to the list is increased minimum wage and paid sick leave for West Hollywood. CDA provides a guide to minimum wage ordinances by city and county and employers are advised to check with their local jurisdictions to ensure they are in compliance.

January 1, 2023: Comply with new permit requirements for general anesthesia, moderate sedation and minor sedation

SB 501 established new requirements for dentists administering or ordering the administration of general anesthesia, deep sedation, and minimal sedation.
