On January 1, 2017, the City of San Francisco’s paid parental leave ordinance becomes effective for employers with 50 or more employees.  These employers will be required to pay the difference between a new parent’s weekly wage and benefits paid from California’s Paid Family Leave Program for 6 weeks, almost doubling the amount they were eligible to receive under the PFL program.  The law becomes effective for employers with 35 or more employees on July 1, 2017, and on January 1, 2018 for employers with 20 or more employees.  A cap is placed on the employer-paid benefit for higher earners that is proportionate to the state’s PFL program benefit cap.
