CA Lab Code Section 1182


After receipt of the wage board report and the public hearings on the proposed regulations, the commission may, upon its own motion, amend or rescind an existing order or promulgate a new order. However, with respect to proposed regulations based on recommendations supported by at least two-thirds of the members of the wage board, the commission shall adopt such proposed regulations, unless it finds there is no substantial evidence to support such recommendations.


If at any time the federal minimum wage applicable to employees covered by the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended, prior to February 1, 1967, is scheduled to exceed the minimum wage fixed by the commission, the provisions of Sections 1178 and 1178.5 pertaining to wage boards shall be waived and the commission shall, in a public meeting, adopt an order fixing a new minimum wage at the scheduled higher federal minimum wage. The effective date of such order shall be the same as the effective date of the federal minimum wage, and such order shall not become operative in the event the scheduled increase in the federal minimum wage does not become operative.
