San Francisco Family Friendly Workplace Ordinance (SF FFWO)
This Ordinance provides for employees who are headquartered in the City of San Francisco or the County the opportunity to request a temporary flexible or predictable work schedule
If you are a Management, Administrative & Technical, or ESC-represented employee headquartered in San Francisco, who has been employed by the company for six months, and work at least 8 hours per week, you are eligible to request a temporary flexible or predictable work schedule.
The ordinance requires employers to engage in a discussion with an employee to determine whether the company is able to accommodate the alternate work schedule request. Employers have the right to decline a request based on business needs.
Requests will be considered for up to 12 weeks in a 12-month rolling calendar period. Employees may make two requests a year as per the Ordinance — for a total of 12 weeks in a 12-month rolling calendar timeframe.
To request a temporary flexible or predictable work schedule, your first step is to have a discussion with your supervisor. Secondly, you must complete the SF FFWO Temporary Flexible or Predictable Work Schedule Request Form and submit it to the HR Ops Interactive Discussion team. Additional information can be obtained by visiting the Workforce Health section of the PGE@Work intranet.
