Chain stores with at least 40 formula retail establishments worldwide and 20 or more employees in San Francisco, as well as their janitorial and security contractors, must follow legal guidelines that regulate scheduling, hours, retention, and treatment of part-time employees.
Most City contractors and tenants (including at the Airport and the Port) must offer health plan benefits to their covered employees, make payment to the Department of Public Health, or, under limited circumstances, make payments directly to their covered employees.
