Alert: Oakland Minimum Wage Increase January 1, 2017
January 1, 2017 the Oakland minimum wage increased .31 to $12.86. Other benefits mandated by Measure FF – paid sick leave and payment of service charges – remain the same as when the employment law took effect March 2, 2015.
Voters approved Oakland Measure FF, which raised the minimum wage in Oakland to $12.25. The law took effect on March 2, 2015. Employees who perform at least 2 hours of work in a particular workweek within Oakland - including part-time, temporary and seasonal employees - must be paid at least the minimum wage. The ordinance also adjusts the minimum wage up based on the regional Consumer Price Index (CPI). The first CPI adjustment took effect on January 1, 2016, and will increase on that date every year thereafter.
The City of Oakland is providing updated official Employee Notification posters, which must be posted annually at each workplace. More about the new minimum wage law and posters in English, Spanish, Cantonese and Vietnamese can be found on the City's website.
