Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

In the fall of 2018, the Mayor’s Office requested a change to the city’s minimum wage floor for all city employees. The Office of Human Resources (OHR) supports the Mayor’s Office in the application of changes to the classification and pay plan. The minimum wage is proposed to increase as follows: $13.00 per hour on July 1, 2019, $14.00 per hour on July 1, 2020, and $15.00 per hour on July 1, 2021.

 

The OHR analyzed all existing pay ranges to identify classifications whose pay range minimum is below the proposed wage floor rate. Classifications with current pay range minimums below the July 1, 2019 threshold rate of $13.00 per hour were increased to the new threshold rate, and then the pay range maximums were recalculated appropriately for affected ranges only.

 

 

EMPLOYEE PAY ADJUSTMENTS

 

For the employee impact and cost analysis, all employees in affected pay ranges were provided pay increases. If any employee’s current pay rate fell below any adjusted pay range minimum, their pay rate was increased to the new range minimum. For other employees whose pay rate was in the pay range, they will maintain their current placement in the pay range. For any employee whose pay rate was above range maximum, there was no change to the employee’s pay rate.
