San Jose Releases Required Notice Under 'Opportunity to Work' Ordinance

Hardship Exemption Application Also Available

The City of San Jose has released a notice that covered employers must post under the San Jose Opportunity to Work Ordinance.

Background
The San Jose Opportunity to Work Ordinance generally requires employers with 36 or more employees to offer additional work hours to existing qualified part-time employees before hiring new employees (including subcontractors or the use of temporary staffing services). Additional details on coverage are available by clicking here.

The ordinance contains a hardship exemption for up to 12 months for an employer who demonstrates that it has undertaken in good faith all reasonable steps to comply, and full and immediate compliance would be impracticable, impossible, or futile. The ordinance is effective March 13, 2017.

Additionally, covered employers must also post a notice of employee rights.

New Notice and Resources
The required notice that employers must post under the ordinance is now available. The City of San Jose has also released a hardship exemption application that employers may use.

Additional information (including a copy of the ordinance and preliminary FAQs) is available by clicking here.
