We wanted to provide an update on our earlier report about recent legislative happenings in San Francisco. (A link to our earlier article can be found here.) The San Francisco Retail Workers’ Bill of Rights became law on December 5, 2014, 10 days after it was passed by the Board of Supervisors and presented to Mayor Lee. Under Section 3.103 of the Charter of the City and County of San Francisco, an ordinance becomes law if the mayor neither signs nor disapproves of the ordinance within 10 days of the date it was presented to the mayor for consideration.
The effective date of the San Francisco Retail Workers’ Bill of Rights is January 4, 2015, and the law becomes operative on July 3, 2015.
