The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has voted to approve an agreement between the County’s Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) wage enforcement program and the city of Santa Monica. The DCBA wage enforcement program will provide wage enforcement services to the City of Santa Monica to ensure that businesses are complying with Santa Monica’s new minimum wage law.

Brian Stiger, Director of DCBA, said, “The County’s Wage Enforcement team brings established resources and structure to the region’s wage enforcement efforts. As new minimum wage laws are implemented in other County cities, educating the business community and compliance are of tremendous importance.”

County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, added, “I hope that other municipalities will follow Santa Monica’s lead and utilize the fine skills of the County’s crack wage enforcement team. It’s very important to ensure compliance with this important new law which is designed to help working families thrive.”
