San Francisco Mandates Paid Military Leave

February 8, 2023


San Francisco recently passed a law that allows employees who are members of the U.S. military to take paid military leave for one or more days at a time for up to 30 days per year. It requires employers to pay active military members the difference between their military pay and the amount they would have received from their employer working their regular schedule while they are on military duty.

Private-sector employers are covered by the law if they have 100 or more employees, regardless of where they work.

They aren’t eligible if they’re covered under a collective bargaining agreement that waives the leave requirements.
