Additional Workplace Partnership Group listening sessions added

The Workplace Partnership Group is hearing from employers, employees and the community as it develops policy recommendations related to earned sick time and paid time off. To help in that effort, more listening sessions have been added to the calendar. These community-based listening sessions help the group gain insights, concerns, perspectives, experiences, and suggestions from the public.

The Minneapolis City Council established the Workplace Partnership Group last fall as a working group specifically tasked with developing policy recommendations related to earned sick time and paid time off.  The group will report its recommendations to the Committee of the Whole no later than Feb. 24, 2016.
