Details of the Minimum Wage

Minimum Wage Requirements

On July 1, 2019, employers in the City of San Francisco will be required to pay their employees an increased minimum wage of at least $15.59 per hour. This increase pertains to adult and minor employees who work 2 or more hours per week in the city, including part-time and temporary workers.

Under the San Francisco Minimum Wage Ordinance, the following employees must be paid a lower minimum wage rate of $13.79 per hour: those who are under 18 years of age or over the age of 55 and work for government-subsidized nonprofit organizations.

Minimum Wage Notice

San Francisco’s Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) has already released the Minimum Wage notice reflecting the increased July 1 minimum wage rate. Employers in San Francisco must continue to pay their employees the current minimum wage of $15.00—and post the current Minimum Wage notice—through June 30, 2019.

Because the new notice was released far in advance of the effective date, we are waiting to issue our updated San Francisco poster. However, we can assure you that our customers will receive the poster with the new Minimum Wage notice in plenty of time prior to the effective date of July 1, 2019.
