San Francisco Minimum Wage Set to Rise May 1

Apr 6 2015 - Compensation, Minimum Wage - Gail Cecchettini Whaley

Last November, San Francisco voters passed Proposition J, which makes incremental raises to San Francisco’s minimum wage. The first minimum wage increase to $12.25 per hour goes into effect on May 1, 2015.

San Francisco employers must replace the current minimum wage notice with the new minimum wage notice reflecting the $12.25 rate. Visit the San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) Minimum Wage Ordinance page for more information.

The minimum wage in San Francisco will eventually increase to $15 per hour by 2018, and future increases will be tied to increases to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Effective Date Minimum Wage Rate
5/1/2015 $12.25
7/1/2016 $13.00
7/1/2017 $14.00
7/1/2018 $15.00
July 1st each following year CPI increase

CalChamber’s San Francisco Labor Law Poster includes the official minimum wage notice from the OLSE reflecting the mandatory minimum wage increase. The poster also contains the following employment notices required by San Francisco local ordinances:

  • San Francisco Paid Sick Leave Notice
  • San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance (with rate increases for 2015)
  • San Francisco Family Friendly Workplace Notice

The poster also contains translations of each notice by OLSE into Spanish, Chinese and Tagalog. A separate San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance poster is also available.
