Los Altos Minimum Wage Poster Description
This poster shows the effective minimum wage rate. The minimum wage rate is scheduled to increase annually until January 1, 2020 when the minimum wage rate will be adjusted based on the regional Consumer Price Index. The minimum wage rate applies to employers who are subject to the Los Altos business license tax or who maintain a business facility in the City. It covers employees who work at least two hours per week in the City of Los Altos.
The City’s Minimum Wage Ordinance protects employees from retaliation for asserting their rights under the Ordinance. An employee whose rights have been violated may file a civil suit against an employer or a complaint with the City. Contact information for the enforcement agency is provided. The poster describes what information may be required from the employee.
