SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A proposal by the chairman of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors would allow workers to request flexible working hours from their employers.
Supervisor David Chiu’s proposed measure would allow workers to ask their employers to adjust their start times, telecommute or job share.
“Would give employees the right to ask of their employers a more flexible working arraignment,” Chiu told KPIX 5. “You don’t really have a right that’s protected under any law. In fact, there are examples of retaliation and discrimination against parents that are trying to balance work-life balance. This affects parents up and down the economic spectrum.”
