- All airport employers at airports in the LAWA system who are subject to the Living Wage Ordinance must post prominently in place frequented by employees a copy of the City’s World Airport Living Wage Poster. The Poster provides employees with information regarding the Living Wage Rate (both with and without health benefits), the provision of days off, and the Earned Income Credit (EIC).
- The Living Wage Ordinance requires airport contractors to compensate their employees no less than the effective Living Wage Rate for all hours worked.
- The Living Wage Rate paid to employees is adjusted contractors that offer health benefits. Contractors who do not offer health benefits are required to pay employees the full cash Living Wage Rate.
- The law requires the Living Wage Rate to be adjusted annually based on LACERS benefits. Adjustments to the Living Wage Rate take effect each July 1.
- Employees may also accrue compensated and uncompensated time off for family or personal illness.
- Employees who assert their rights under the law are protected from retaliation.
- An employee may file a civil lawsuit against his/her employer for failure to pay the Living Wage Rate, failure to comply with the law’s health benefit requirements, and for retaliation, or he/she may file a complaint with the City.
