San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement (03/27/12)
The 2011 Health Care Security Ordinance Annual Reporting Form is now available for online submission. The HCSO requires the San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement to collect information on a yearly basis from companies regarding their health care expenditures. To avoid penalties of $500 per quarter, “covered employers” must submit the ARF by April 30, 2012. The 2011 ARF has been updated this year to reflect the November 2011 Amendment to the HCSO, which went into effect on Jan. 1, 2012. Employers should read the Instructions for Completing the 2011 HCSO Annual Reporting Form before they fill out and submit the online form. The instructions and the ARF itself are now available at the OLSE Web site.
