Peralta Implementation of Oakland Minimum Wage and Paid Sick Leave Ordinances

Peralta Implementation of Oakland Minimum Wage and Paid Sick Leave Ordinances


On November 4, 2014, voters approved Oakland Measure FF which will raise the minimum wage in Oakland to $12.25 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 minimum wage. The ordinance also adjusts the minimum wage up based on the regional Consumer Price Index (CPI). The first CPI adjustment will take effect on January 1, 2016, and every year thereafter.


Sec. 5.92.020. Minimum Wage

In accordance with the City of Oakland ordinances, the minimum wage hourly rate will change to meet the new minimum pay rate standard, $12.25 per hour.

Employers shall pay Employees no less than the Minimum Wage for each hour worked within the geographic boundaries of the City. Beginning on the 2nd of March, 2015, the Minimum Wage shall be an hourly rate of $12.25. To prevent inflation from eroding its value, beginning on the 1st of January 2016, and then each year thereafter on the 1st of January, the Minimum Wage shall increase by an amount corresponding to the prior calendar year’s increase, if any, in the CPI for urban wage earners and clerical workers for the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose, CA metropolitan statistical area (or if such index is discontinued, then in the most similar successor index).
