Employers who have unsatisfied wage theft judgments can have their contracts and certain operational permits revoked in the City of San Jose!
Although Santa Clara County and Santa Clara Unified School District have both passed policies to prevent them from doing business with wage theft violators but San Jose went the extra step to go after deadbeat employers!

While we appreciate every Council member who voted in favor, we give particular thanks to Council members Magdalena Carrasco who championed this cause and Councilmembers Ash Kalra, Donald Rocha, Raul Peralez, and Johnny Khammis for their early support! We also want to thank Nina Grayson from the Office of Equality Assurance for her tireless work on this issue.

Here is Sameena Usman, Government Relations Coordinator,  speaking on behalf of CAIR advocating for the City of San Jose to adopt the Wage Theft Ordinance!
The City of San Jose has made a difference for workers in Santa Clara County. We hope to see other South Bay cities follow your leadership and enact similar policies and ordinances.
