If you're an employee and believe you have not been paid appropriately and/or other rights under the Minimum Wage Ordinance have been violated, you have the option to:
Speak with your employer to resolve the complaint at the lowest level;
File a complaint through the City's Office of Labor Standards Division (OLS);
File a Civil Lawsuit against your employer.
When filing a complaint through the OLS, a Complaint Declaration Form must be completed. The Complaint Declaration Formis available below in English and Spanish. You may also contact or visit the OLS at City Hall (211 W. Aspen Ave.) to obtain a hard copy of the Complaint Declaration Form during regular business hours. You may also file your complaint through the OLS Online Complaint or Questions Submission link below.
No anonymous complaints will be investigated.
For employers and employees, the OLS has provided a useful guide into investigations below if an investigation is initiated by the OLS. This is a general guide and resource, and does not constitute legal advice. It may be updated periodically, as deemed appropriate by the City. Should you have any question, please contact the Office of Labor Standards Division. Office Of Labor Standards Investigation Guide
