ABC Temporary Catering Authorization Update
& PRIDE Celebrations

We’ve gotten confirmation that the ABC has been accepting and approving Temporary Catering Authorization applications in San Francisco.

Businesses need an approved Temporary Catering Authorization Permit in order to serve alcohol in outdoor seating areas that have been obtained through the Shared Spaces Program. 

Please note that San Francisco PRIDE is this weekend. While there are no in-person events scheduled for Pride 2020, be sure your staff and guests are following health guidelines while celebrating! There will be enforcement around health, safety, and alcohol guidelines this weekend. If you have not already, please be sure to apply for the ABC permit ASAP. 
San Francisco Passes Back-To-Work Emergency Ordinance 
Mandating Reemployment For Certain Workers:
An Update from Fisher Phillips

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors just passed the Back-to-Work Emergency Ordinance aimed at guaranteeing reemployment to certain workers who were laid off by covered employers due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This Ordinance creates a temporary right to reemployment when certain larger employers seek to hire workers for the same or substantially similar positions previously held by other workers who were recently laid off. This Ordinance also prohibits covered employers from discriminating against those laid-off workers with family care hardships and allows them to request reasonable accommodations for the hardships. The Ordinance, approved on June 23, will become effective immediately upon the Mayor’s signature and will expire upon the 61st day following enactment unless extended.  What do San Francisco employers need to know about this new obligation? 

Note: This ordinance only applies to employers with 100 or more employees.
