The City and County of San Francisco Amends the Fair Chance Ordinance Poster
The Fair Chance Ordinance (FCO) poster was updated recently by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Employers with 5 or more employees, City contractors, subcontractors, and leaseholders are covered by the FCO and should ensure they have posted the most current version of the FCO poster at every workplace and jobsite. More information can be found on The City and County of San Francisco, Office of Labor Standards Enforcement website.
The ordinance requires covered agencies to follow strict rules regarding applicant and employee arrest and conviction records. Employee need only work at least 8 hours per week in San Francisco, and includes temporary, seasonal, part-time, contract, contingent, and commission-based work. The FCO also covers services worked through a temporary or employment agency, and any vocational or educational training, paid or unpaid.
A few of the critical changes are:
- Applies to employers with 5 or more employees worldwide
- The FCO Poster must be posted at each workplace and jobsite
- Job ads and solicitations must include specific language to comply with the FCO
- Adverse action requires specific steps and procedures as outlined on the website
- Yearly compliance reports are required
The agency created a helpful summary of changes for employers here and a presentation outlining requirements here.
