PROPOSED: San Francisco Retail Workers Bill of Rig...
Description: Ordinance amending the Administrative Code to regulate the operation of Formula Retail Establishments, including the hiring of and equal treatment of part-time workers, wage rates for on-call, last minute and cancelled work, promotion of full-time employment, and retention of employees for up to 90 days upon a change in control of the Establishment. Employers Covered: · Businesses covered by the “formula retail” definition in the San Francisco Planning Code · This includes all retail stores, fast food businesses, restaurants, hotels and banks with 11 or more similar stores nationwide · There are approximately 1,250 formula retail businesses in San Francisco including Target, Lowe’s, The Gap, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Olive Garden and Wells Fargo Key Provisions of San Francisco Retail Workers Bill of Rights: 1. Promoting Full-TimeWork and Access to Hours: To promote access to full-time employment and career growth, if a formula retail employer has additional hours of work to offer in job positions held by current part-time employees, it shall offer those hours of work first to existing qualified employees before the employer may hire additional part-time employees, or before it may secure additional employees through the services of a temporary services agency, staffing agency, or any similar contractor. 2. Discouraging Abusive On Call Practices and Encourage Fair, Predictable Schedules: Requiring formula retail employers to post core schedules in advance, provide employees reasonable notice for any schedules, and to provide premium pay at an employee’s regular rate of pay when an employer requires an employee to be “on-call” for a specific shift, or cancels a shift with less than 24 hours notice. 3. Equal Treatment for Part-Time Workers: Prohibit formula retail employers from discriminating against an employee with respect to their rate of pay, access to employer provided paid and unpaid time off, access to promotion opportunities, or hours of employment because of an employee’s part-time status. Additionally, ensure that an employee who cannot maintain “open availability” (meaning being available at any time for a shift) or who requests a more flexible schedule is not denied employment, access to additional hours, access to full-time status, or access to promotions. 4. Worker Retention and Job Security–Protectworkersagainstlosingtheirjobswhen their company is bought or sold, by requiring that if formula retail businesses are acquired, the workers must be kept on at their jobs for at least a 90-day trial period.

1601 Mariposa Street - Call for Small Business Par...
The 1601 Mariposa project team would like to invite your business to participate in the inaugural Mariposa Market. 1601 Mariposa is inviting some of the region’s premier organic farms and top local vendors to create a market for nearby residents. This is one of several events coming this fall that is intended to transform the current industrial space into a communal area everyone in the neighborhood can enjoy. The market will also raise money for Potrero Hill non-profit organizations. Related California will donate a portion of the market’s sales to the community, and if there’s interest, it’s our intention to make the market a weekly event. This is an opportunity to create a new gathering space for Potrero Hill, and for local businesses to engage with the community. Please contact me with any questions or to sign up to participate. We hope to see you there! More here: https://docsend.com/view/2nf97s3
