San Francisco passes Paid Parental Leave Law #PaidLeave

Some of my best times have been spent in San Francisco--the Wharf, the Pier, the Golden Gate Bridge... Now I have another reason to love that city.

There's great news if you're currently a working mom who lives in San Francisco or plan to be one! See below!

Thanks to Nixon Peabody for enlightening me!

San Francisco passes Paid Parental Leave Law
The City of San Francisco is the first in the nation to require employers to pay for parental leave. In 2004, California became the first state to create a family leave insurance program that provides partial wage replacement of 55% of weekly wages up to a cap of $1,129 for employees on leave for family care giving or bonding with a new child. The State of New York recently passed a similar law. Now, San Francisco will require employers to "top up" the Paid Family Leave benefits for up to six weeks by paying supplemental compensation consisting of the difference between the state-provided benefits and an employee's full pay for new-child bonding. The new law takes effect on January 1, 2017, for employers with 50 or more employees and on July 1, 2017, for employers with 20 or more employees, regardless of location.
