City Council to talk sick leave today

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

Sad that City Council isn’t meeting this week? Don’t worry, they are. Council will convene at City Hall today at 1:30 p.m. in order to discuss the upcoming paid sick leave ordinance (a draft of which is posted here.) The meeting was scheduled for 1 p.m., but Council Member Greg Casar allowed that the meeting would likely start later than planned due to various commitments on the dais. City Council is scheduled to vote on the ordinance on Feb. 15, and discuss it again at the work session prior to that meeting, on Feb. 13. If it passes, the new city law would mandate Austin employers offer paid sick leave to employees.
