In 2015, the University of California (UC) became the first public university in the United States to voluntarily establish a $15 per hour minimum wage. The plan is called UC Fair Wage/Fair Work Plan. In addition to UC employees, contractors doing business with UC are also required to pay their employees $15 per hour.
Several measures have been put in place to ensure contractors comply with the new minimum wage, including annual audits, which must be paid by the contractor, to ensure they are complying with UC’s minimum wage plan, as well as all federal, state, and UC workplace laws and policies.
