How is employer size determined?

In determining the number of persons performing work for an employer during a given week, all persons performing work for the same business enterprise, including full-time, part-time, or temporary workers, are counted, regardless of whether the employees work inside of or outside of the City.

What are the law’s protections and penalties?

An employer may not discriminate or retaliate against any employee for exercising his or her rights under the ordinance. Remedies include reinstatement, and the payment of back wages unlawfully withheld, and a civil penalty in the amount of one hundred dollars ($100.00) to each employee whose rights were violated for each day that the violation occurred or continued.

What are the notice and recordkeeping requirements?

Every employer is required to post in a conspicuous place at any workplace or job site where any covered employee works a notice informing employees of the adjusted minimum wage rate for the upcoming 12-month period and their rights under law. The notice must be posting in English, Spanish and other languages, if required by implementing regulations. Employers must give written notification to each current and new employee of his or her rights under law. The notification shall be in all languages spoken by more than 10% of the employees and shall also be posted prominently in areas at the work site where it will be seen by all employees.

Every employer must maintain for at least (3) three years a record of each employee’s name, hours worked, and pay rate and must be provided to the employee upon reasonable request. Every employer must provide each employee, upon hire and annually, with a written notification setting forth the employer’s legal name, address, and telephone number, and the name of a person responsible for inquiries concerning compliance with the ordinance.
