Update: San Francisco’s HCSO 2016 Salary Exemption Limit (article)
Along with adjusting an employer’s health care expenditure amounts for 2016 (see San Francisco HCSO Expenditure Rates for 2016, Benefit Beat, 9/8/15), for purposes of the San Francisco’s Health Care Security Ordinance (HCSO), the Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (OLSE) has adjusted the salary exemption figure. An employee who is a manager, supervisor, or confidential employee, and who earns at or above an annual salary of $92,990 (or, $44.71 hourly) in 2016 is exempt from coverage under the HCSO (see Q&A 13, Covered Employee from HCSO Administrative Guidance). In 2015, the annual salaried figure was $90,745 (or, $43.63 hourly).
