As our loyal readers know, we have been writing about the comments and activities surrounding the San Francisco ordinances known as the “Retail Workers’ Bill of Rights” for a few months, with our most recent blog post here and our Management Alert here. As promised, we have our first update to share regarding the implementation of these ordinances.
The San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) has released a preliminary information page on its website. So far, no new specifics have been provided (stay tuned), but the OLSE has confirmed the operative date for the Retail Workers’ Bill of Rights is July 3, 2015. Therefore, all affected employers must be in compliance with the ordinances by July 3rd, just in time for the long holiday weekend.
