The City of San Jose has released a new poster for a law that goes into effect on March 13, 2017.

The city’s new Opportunity to Work Ordinance provides work hours protections for existing employees who work at least 2 hours a week.

Under the law, employers of 36 or more employees must offer additional work hours to existing qualified part-time employees before hiring new employees, subcontractors, or temporary staff.

What’s Next for the City?

Because San Jose is following a $15.00 minimum wage path, there will be another poster change prior to July 1, 2017, when the city’s minimum wage will increase to $12.00. But you can rest assured that our research team will be on the lookout for that poster!
