Consultants/Health Reimbursemetn Accounts in San Francisco

I have heard complaints from small business owners about consultants. As most of you know many consultants are not licensed and there really is no oversight of their activities. It has been suggested to me actually by a consultant that these people obtain some form of licensing provided by the state.

Have you had problems with consultants?

What were they doing for you?

Do you think there should be some form of state oversight?

For those of you in San Francisco Thursday at 10 in the GAO committee there will be a hearing on legislation by David Campos requiring businesses with 20 or more employees to pay I believe quarterly into their Health Reimbursement Account at the prescribed $1.36 per hour or $2.07. But it is estimated the cost for businesses affected is about $50 million. While the Economic Report is not yet completed we are being given indications this cost about 1000 jobs.

It will be in either room 250 or 278 at City Hall. It is expected labor will have a big turnout for this.

For those interested I encourage you to attend. If you have any questions please let me know.
