The City of San Mateo, California enacted a new minimum wage ordinance that takes effect January 1, 2017. The new citywide minimum wage ordinance details a series of staged increases to the minimum wage that will reach $15.00 per hour by January 1, 2019, with potential Consumer Price Index adjustments each year thereafter.
San Mateo Minimum Wage Increase
*Each year, the City of San Mateo will assess the rate for changes in the cost of living, as measured by the Consumer Price Index.
The ordinance requires all employers with at least one employee who works two hours or more a week within the city limits to provide a wage at least at the minimum levels.
San Mateo Minimum Wage Posting and Notice Requirements
The ordinance states that the City will release a revised posting every November 1 prior to the annual minimum wage change effective each January 1. Employers will be required to post the notification prominently in areas at the work site where it will be seen by all employees. The notice will be provided in English to begin with, but the City may provide the notice in other languages in the future.
Additionally, employers must provide each new employee notice of the new minimum wage.
