Our “Leading Living Wage For US Employers” ensure that workers earn the rates of pay by geography listed in our living wage map, by accounting for benefits that directly reduce costs of living included in the living wage estimates in addition to base pay and expected bonuses. By applying for certification, employers may use our living wage total remuneration assessment tool to assess the gap, if any still remains once the base cash wage band is paid, to a family living wage. Please contact us to learn more about how you can use this tool as part of your certification process.
