San Antonio puts off sick leave ordinance

Friday, July 26, 2019 by Jo Clifton

Like Austin City Council did, the San Antonio City Council passed a paid sick leave ordinance, and like Austin, San Antonio was sued by businesses that objected to the city imposing such requirements. San Antonio’s ordinance is currently very much like Austin’s ordinance, which was recently struck down by the 3rd Court of Appeals. Unlike in Austin, the opponents of the ordinance sat down with San Antonio’s city attorneys and agreed to put off moving forward with the lawsuit if San Antonio would put off implementing the ordinance until Dec. 1. During that time, the city has a committee working on changes that could halt the lawsuit. Stay tuned.
