San Francisco HCSO

How much is a Covered Employer required to spend on health care for its Covered Employees?

The minimum Health Care Expenditure for each Covered Employee is determined quarterly by multiplying the total number of hours payable to the employee in the quarter by the applicable Health Care Expenditure rate.

HCSO Expenditures

Hours payable includes both the hours for which a person is paid wages for work performed within San Francisco and the hours for which a person is entitled to be paid wages, including, but not limited to, paid vacation, paid time off, and paid sick leave, but not exceeding 172 hours in a single month. Hours payable in a quarter refers to when the payment is earned, rather than when it is actually paid out to the employee.

The employer must make minimum Health Care Expenditures to or on behalf of each Covered Employee. Payments to or on behalf of one Covered Employee that exceed the required minimum Health Care Expenditure for that employee will not be considered in determining whether an employer has met its total required minimum Health Care Expenditures for all employees. There is an exception for employers that provide uniform coverage.

Note that “hours payable” is the figure used to calculate the expenditure required for each Covered Employee, but “hours worked” is used to determine whether an employee is covered by the HCSO.
