NEW: San Francisco Paid Parental Leave Benefits

This policy, effective January 1, 2017 applies to “Covered Employers,” who are defined under the ordinance as those with the following number of employees (including employees in and out of the City/County of San Francisco):

  • 50 or more employees (beginning 1/1/2017);
  • 35 or more employees (beginning 7/1/2017);
  • 20 or more employees (beginning 1/1/2018).

This policy is inapplicable to employers who already have a policy that provides at least six (6) weeks (consecutive, unless the employee elects otherwise) of fully paid parental leave within any 12-month period for purposes of bonding with a new child (whether or not such paid leave includes California Paid Family Leave benefits).
