Notice from the City of Oakland

Measure FF, the voter-initiative ballot measure passed in November 2014, provides annual increases to Oakland’s Minimum Wage based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI-W) for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area. The CPI-W from August 2016 to August 2017 increased approximately 2.9%.

As a result – Oakland’s Minimum Wage will go up to $13.23 on January 1, 2018.

In light of the increase, employers are required:

•  By December 15, 2017, employers must distribute and prominently display posters on the new minimum wage increase to all employees;

•  On January 1, 2018, the rate goes up 37¢ to $13.23 for all employees that work at least two hours in a particular work week in Oakland

•  The other benefits mandated by Measure FF — paid sick leave and payment of service charges — remain the same as when the employment law took effect on March 2, 2015.
