Fremont’s minimum wage is scheduled to increase on July 1 for both large and small employers. Beginning July 1, large employers with 26 or more employees will be subject to a $15/hour minimum wage and small employers with 25 or fewer employees will increase to $13.50/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, while small employers will increase to $15/hour. 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.
Fremont’s Minimum Wage Ordinance exempts non-profit corporations. For more information, visit our minimum wage webpage or contact the City Manager’s office via email.
