Over the past few weeks, SWBA has been listening to input from business members, and last week met with co-author Council Member Palmisano to discuss the proposal and share concerns. As good business owners, we're all in agreement that our employees should be paid what they earn.
This ordinance would expand enforcement authority of wage theft issues to the City, and adds a few more requirements, mostly surrounding notification of earned safe and sick time (ESST). Based upon conversations and our meeting, SWBA submitted written comment asking for some modifications that would ease the amount of work to implement the required record keeping changes.
