Call City Council and the Mayor for Emergency Paid Sick Leave
Councilmember Kendra Brooks is putting forward another COVID-19 Emergency Paid Sick Leave bill! As it stands right now, this bill (#22051) would allow workers to take up to 40 hours of paid leave, which would be available for use immediately to recover from COVID-19 or care for a sick family member if they work in a business with 10 or more employees. This is different from the city’s paid sick leave law that requires time to be accrued. The public hearing is February 14th at 1pm. In addition to potentially being a (small) win for workers, this could also be an important opportunity to let a lot of potential mayoral candidates know who we are and what our demands are. We need to let city council and the mayor know that we want to push this forward!
