Litigation Over San Francisco’s Employer Mandated Healthcare Ordinance Continues

Topics: New Laws & Legislation

The Golden Gate Restaurant Association has filed a petition with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals requesting en banc review of the court's September 30 decision holding that San Francisco's employer mandated healthcare ordinance is not preempted by ERISA. The City of San Francisco has until approximately November 12 to file a response to the petition. The Ninth Circuit previously ordered that the City could enforce the healthcare mandate while the appeals process was pending. It is expected that the mandate will continue to remain in effect during the pendency of any en banc review by the Ninth Circuit.
