In light of California's changes to the Healthy Workplace, Healthy Families Act of 2014, OLSE has updated the Frequently Asked Questions on San Francisco's Paid Sick Leave Ordinance.
The San Francisco Paid Sick Leave Ordinance (PSLO) requires employers to provide paid sick leave to all employees (including temporary and part-time employees) who perform work in San Francisco. Employees earn 1 hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked.

In 2006, San Francisco voters passed the Paid Sick Leave Ordinance (PSLO), becoming the first city in the United States to pass a paid sick leave law. The law took effect on February 5th, 2007. In 2016, San Francisco voters passed amendments to the PSLO to include worker protections that largely parallel California's Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014.
