The San Jose Minimum Wage Ordinance, which took effect on March 11, raised the minimum wage for “covered employees” to $10 per hour. A “covered employee” is anyone who works two or more hours per week within the city limits.
Note: The new minimum wage may be waived for employees who work under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement, as long as the employer and union agree.
Covered employers must post notices in the workplace and maintainrecords of covered employees for four years. The San Jose Office of Equality Assurance announced that it will be enforcing the law on a complaint-only basis.
