Healthy S.F. calls for company to pay $1.3 million in past medical expenses for employees
San Francisco Examiner

Employees of a janitorial services firm never received health care benefits required under The City’s Healthy San Francisco program, and now the company must pay $1.3 million to cover the past medical expenses of 275 current and former workers.

Calling the decision by an administrative hearings officer a “groundbreaking case,” City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s office said Friday that the ruling sends a message that the health care policy has teeth.
