In October, the Family Friendly Workplace Ordinance (FFWO) was enacted in San Francisco and will go into effect for all businesses with over 20 employees located in San Francisco on January 1, 2014. This ordinance gives employees the right to request a flexible work arrangement and gives the employer the right to refuse for legitimate business reasons. This ordinance opens the door for a dialogue between the employee and employer about flexible workplace arrangements.

The changing demographics of San Francisco families have put a strain on workers trying to balance the competing demands of work and family. The stereotypical "one-breadwinner, one homemaker" household has not been a reality for most families in San Francisco. Yet, despite the increased number of single parent households, families where both parents work outside of the home, and the increasing demand for elder and other family care, our economy has yet to adapt, forcing many workers to choose between work and family. Because of the ever more complicated work-family dynamic and the sky-high cost of living, families are exiting from San Francisco at alarming rates. For the City to become more family friendly, so too must its businesses.

Please join us on November 13th for a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session on what the Family Friendly Workplace Ordinance will mean for you and your business.
