Fantastic Sams franchise to pay $10K in back wages as part of settlement with Minneapolis

The city says the franchise violated the city's minimum wage ordinance.

The City of Minneapolis has entered into a settlement agreement with a Fantastic Sams franchise after it violated the city's minimum wage ordinance, a news release says. 

The salon at 5003 34th Ave. S. in Minneapolis has agreed to pay workers $10,000 in back wages and penalties that are owed under city ordinance, the city said in a news release. Training is also required as part of the settlement. 

The City of Minneapolis enacted a minimum wage ordinance, which went into effect in 2018. The minimum wage in Minneapolis went up to $11.75/hour for everyone and went up to $13.25 for franchises and employers with 100 employees on July 1, 2020.

Come July 1 of this year, the minimum wage goes up to $12.50 and $14.25 for large employers. 

People can report violations to the city's minimum wage ordinance by calling 311, go to City Hall room 239 in person or report via this online form.
