The City of San Francisco’s Human Rights Commission released a new posting required for all employers with a business tax registration certificate from the City or that hold contracts with the City.[wc_divider style=”dotted” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]
The new San Francisco workplace discrimination notice informs employees and independent contractors that employers and persons engaging the services of an independent contractor are prohibited from discriminating against protected persons during recruitment, hiring, training, promotion and termination.
The posting points out that retaliation for filing complaints of discrimination is illegal and the employers must provide reasonable accommodation for persons with disabilities. Additionally, the posting reiterates that City contractors must offer equal benefits to employees with domestic partners.
Which San Francisco Workers are Protected from Employment Discrimination?
Article 33 of the San Francisco Police Code prohibits employers from taking adverse employment action against protected classes of individuals based on:
- Race / Color / National origin / Place of birth
- Marital status
- Religion / Creed

An employer commits unlawful discrimination by refusing to hire, firing, under-compensating, or making less favorable terms of employment for workers protected by the Article.[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

City posting coverage is just another reason why North America’s largest employers trust GovDocs for ongoing posting compliance.[wc_divider style=”solid” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]
