Minimum Wage Education & Enforcement

Learn about the Minimum Wage Law. Report a problem at your workplace. Meet the City's Partner Organizations.


Education

Consistent with other city best practice, Santa Monica has partnered with community groups for dedicated outreach and training to Santa Monica’s businesses and workers.  This means that:

  • Businesses and employees have additional resources for information and to ask questions 
  • Business, employees, and community members can attend minimum wage workshops and trainings
  • You may see our outreach teams in your neighborhood!

Enforcement

Santa Monica has partnered with Los Angeles County to enforce our City’s minimum wage law.  This means that:

  • Santa Monica’s workers have access to LA County’s dedicated wage enforcement unit. 
  • Workers can file a wage claim on the phone, online, or in person at any LA County Office.
