What Are The Laws Reg­u­lat­ing Pre Em­ploy­ment Credit Check?

The HR Digest - - HR Drift -

Re­cently, San Fran­cisco be­came the first city in the U.S. to of­fer fully paid parental leave to new par­ents. The de­bate over fully paid parental leave has gained mo­men­tum in a sim­i­lar man­ner the is­sue of min­i­mum wage hike did across the coun­try. This move for paid leave will of­fer new fathers and mothers to spend time with their new­born or newly adopted child.

Un­der this new man­date, all new-par­ent Cal­i­for­nian work­ers are el­i­gi­ble for fully paid time off for six weeks. The em­ploy­ees in Cal­i­for­nia are al­ready en­ti­tled to re­ceive 55% of wage for up to 6 weeks. This pol­icy re­ceives its cov­er­age from pub­lic dis­abil­ity in­sur­ance. The bur­den of rest 45% is cov­ered by em­ploy­ers.

The ad­vo­cates for this is­sue sug­gest the mea­sure is nec­es­sary be­cause there are par­ents who can­not af­ford to lose pay­checks to take time off fol­low­ing an adop­tion or birth. Few gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties and big league cor­po­ra­tions al­ready of­fer em­ployee ben­e­fits. But for star­tups and smaller busi­nesses, this is­sue has emerged out as yet another costly man­date, which they surely can­not af­ford. The move con­sists of var­i­ous im­pli­ca­tions for the star­tups in the city, a ma­jor­ity of which of­fer gen­er­ous poli­cies to em­ploy­ees al­ready. Smaller busi­nesses are go­ing to get a tough time due to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of this pol­icy. They cer­tainly can­not carry the costs on their shoul­ders.
