July 2020: San Francisco, California Legal HR Update

Posted at



San Francisco has released two labor posting changes with an effective date of July 1, 2020.

  1. San Francisco’s minimum wage has increased to $16.07 per hour. A new San Francisco Minimum Wage Posting Notice has been released to reflect the increased minimum wage.
  2. The Paid Parental Leave Posting Notice has been updated to reflect the increase of the leave allowance to eight weeks for San Francisco area employees.

San Francisco employers must post both notices next to where employees frequent.

Note : If you have a labor law poster vendor, these two notices should be included in the city-specific poster. Otherwise, you may print and post from the links below.
Please see below links for all the information and postings.

Paid Parental Leave Ordinance

Back to Work Emergency Ordinance
Additionally, on June 23, 2020, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed an emergency ordinance, known as the “Back to Work” emergency ordinance. It provides re-employment rights to workers laid off as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency and requires covered employers to give priority to laid-off employees as they re-open and resume business operations. The ordinance becomes effective immediately upon signature by Mayor London Breed. It expires 61 days following enactment, unless the ordinance is re-enacted. For more details, read the full update here
