Household employers in San Francisco California have local, city employment ordinances they must comply with, in addition the California Wage Order 15, California EDD taxation, and Federal tax and labor law.
Specifically, the San Francisco Minimum Wage Ordinance and San Francisco Paid Sick Leave Ordinance apply to all employers within the city, including employers of nannies, maids, housekeepers and other household employees.
After the first 90 days of employment, for every 30 hours the household employee works, the employee accrues one hour of paid sick leave. The paid sick leave accrual caps at 40 hours per year for employers with less than 10 employees. This leave does not expire, but is carried over year to year.
Household payroll is complicated, and a mistake can be very costly. Employee advocacy groups are organized state-wide and more and more household workers know their rights in the workplace.
