On January 1, 2017, San Francisco’s Paid Parental Leave Ordinance went into effect for employers with 50 or more employees. It will be phased in for smaller employers on July 1, 2017 (35+) and January 1, 2018 (20+). The law requires private employers to provide “Supplemental Compensation” to make up the difference between a covered employee’s regular wages and the partial wage-replacement benefits provided under California’s Paid Family Leave program, administered by the Employment Development Department, when the employee takes leave to bond with a new child. The San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) has released rules clarifying Supplemental Compensation obligations, along with a new workplace poster, employee request form, and calculation instructions.
