Tacoma Council Officially Considers Minimum Required Paid Leave
Last week we shared that the City of Tacoma would consider requiring all businesses to provide paid time off for employees (link).
Now the Council has placed a draft ordinance on their agenda for first reading tomorrow night. This means any time after tomorrow they could adopt or amend it. Tomorrow we hope to hear about any proposed changes, good or bad, and what councilmembers think of them.
The Chamber is sharing its concerns over tracking, employer protections, and one size fits all employees/employers solutions, but the council needs to hear from you & how this would impact your business. Business leaders can sign up for public comment and express how this ordinance will affect you or simply join us in showing support of the business community.
The meeting will be held in Tacoma City Council Chambers, 747 Market Street, First Floor, Tacoma, WA 98402 at 5:00 p.m. If you can't attend, please contact your councilmembers directly. Their emails and phone numbers are at: http://www.cityoftacoma.org/government/city_council
