Working Families Agenda
 The Minneapolis City Council is considering a proposal called the “Working Families Agenda.” The proposal includes initiatives for paid sick and safe leave and predictive scheduling. We saw similar legislation introduced at the State Legislature last session – however, the policies proposed by the City have been drafted even more broadly than at the State Level. For example, the scheduling proposal mandates a 28-day schedule and the sick leave proposal includes the ability to carry accrued leave from one Minneapolis employer to another. The advocates have expressed a timeline for passage of the Agenda for the end of this year.  This issue is likely to come up in future legislative sessions so we would like to hear from you on how these policies would affect your business if it was passed statewide. For more information about the proposal click here.
