San Francisco Minimum Wage Increases to $12.25 per hour on May 1, 2015
Those of you working or doing business in San Francisco may see an increase in employee wages tomorrow. Effective May 1, 2015, employees who work 2 or more hours per week in San Francisco are entitled to receive at least $12.25 per hour.
Employers are also required to post the new San Francisco Minimum Wage Poster, which warns:
Under the Ordinance, employees who assert their rights to receive the City’s minimum wage are protected from retaliation. Employees may file a civil lawsuit against their employers for any violation of the Ordinance. The City can investigate possible violations, shall have access to payroll records, and can enforce the minimum wage requirements by ordering reinstatement of employees, payment of back wages unlawfully withheld, and penalties
San Francisco employers are also required to post:
- San Francisco Paid Sick Leave notice (not to be confused with California Healthy Workplace/Healthy Families Act of 2014 notice which must also be posted as of July 1, 2015)
- San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO) notice with rate increases for 2015 (if you have 20 or more employees)
- San Francisco Family Friendly Workplace Notice.
Other locales may have their own county- or city-specific posters, all of which are in addition to any state and/or federally mandated posters.
You can download the posters individually, or contact an organization such as the California Chamber of Commerce to get all the posters from one place.The Law Office of Phillip J.
