Which employees are covered by Sonoma’s minimum wage?

Sonoma’s minimum wage applies to any person who in a particular week performs more than 2 hours of work within the geographic boundaries of the City of Sonoma for an employer.  The employee must be entitled to payment of minimum wage under the California minimum wage law (Section 1182.12 and Section 1197 of the California Labor Code) in order to be covered by Sonoma’s minimum wage.   Employees are covered for each hour worked within the City.  An employee who is typically based outside the City but works more than 2 hours within the City during a one-week period is covered for all time worked in the City in that one-week period.  See Chapter 2.80 of the Sonoma Municipal Code for details and exceptions.
