Attention Employers! Beginning July 1, 2019, all employers must pay all employees that work in San Francisco at least$15.59 per hour. This increase is part of the San Francisco voter-passed ordinance to incrementally raise the minimum wage in the City of San Francisco.
The July 2019 minimum wage increase is the first of many to come. Moving forward, the San Francisco minimum wage will increase each July according to the yearly increase of the Consumer Price Index for urban and clerical workers. Employers need to pay specific attention to the ordinances enacted in your city as they can differ from general California law and impact not only minimum wage but paid sick leave laws, amongst others.
As an employer, it is crucial to stay up to date with county-specific ordinances to ensure California Labor compliance. To get more information about the San Francisco minimum wage increase, ensure compliance with California Labor laws, and obtain other preventative tips on operating your business, please contact the attorneys at Chauvel & Glatt, LLP.
