San Diego City Council Approves Minimum Wage Increase and Sick Pay Ordinance

The San Diego City Council recently approved an ordinance raising the city’s minimum wage to $11.50 per hour by 2017. This wage increase will take effect incrementally over a three-year period, putting San Diego ahead of California’s minimum wage beginning in January 2015 at the rate of $9.50 per hour. In addition to its wage increase, the ordinance includes numerous sick pay provisions that will affect both employers and employees. For an in-depth discussion of the ordinance, see our blog post, “City of San Diego Imposes Minimum Wage Hike and Sick Pay Ordinance.”
