San Jose’s Opportunity to Work Ordinance Effective March 13
San Jose, Calif., has a new Opportunity to Work Ordinance, passed by voters in the 2016 election.
Under the ordinance, effective March 13, employers with 36 or more employees must offer additional work hours to existing qualified part-time workers before hiring new people, including subcontractors and temporary staff.
A qualified employee, as defined in the ordinance, performs at least two hours of work for an employer in San Jose and is entitled to payment of a minimum wage under California law.
The ordinance was created to promote full-time jobs in the city and deter companies from hiring more part-time employees to avoid health insurance and other related costs.
The San Jose Opportunity to Work Ordinance goes into effect March 13. A posting is available for employers citywide to display in a conspicuous location for employees.
