Fremont Minimum Wage Ordinance to Become Effective July 2019

Minimum Wage

On February 5, the City Council approved a minimum wage ordinance that increases Fremont’s local minimum wage to $15/hour two years earlier than mandated under State law.

Large employers with 26 or more employees will be subject to a $13.50/hour minimum wage beginning July 1, 2019. On July 1, 2020, the local minimum wage for large employers increases to $15.00/hour. To prevent inflation from eroding its value, the minimum wage for large employers will be adjusted beginning on July 1, 2021 by the local consumer price index.

Small employers with 25 or fewer employees will continue to be subject to the State minimum wage until July 1, 2020, at which time the City’s higher requirement of $13.50/hour will become effective, increasing to $15.00/ hour on July 1, 2021. On July 1, 2022, the small employer minimum increases to the large employer level. From that point on, both large and small employers will be subject to the same minimum wage increase defined by the local consumer price index.

The ordinance exempts non-profit corporations and incorporates feedback received from residents, the business community, non-profit organizations, and low-wage workers.
