San Francisco Minimum Wage Notice and Posting Requirements

The San Francisco Minimum Wage Ordinance (MWO) requires every employer to post notices in English, Spanish, Chinese and:

“…in and any other language spoken by at least five percent of the Employees at the workplace or job site.”

Employers must also provide each employee the employer’s name, address and telephone number in writing at the time of hire.

GovDocs City Posting Coverage

San Francisco is just one of more than 40 cities in the U.S. that issues postings required or recommended for employers. Thanks to the nationwide trend of tying minimum wage rates to cost-of-living adjustments (like in San Francisco beginning 2019), more and more workplace postings require frequent replacement.

For large employers (businesses with 50 or more locations), GovDocs suggests using an automatic compliance program to ensure uninterrupted posting coverage for all your employees. Request a price quote from GovDocs today.
