Tacoma to consider paid sick leave amendments

Sep 11, 2017 - 03:05 PM

Tacoma’s City Council is scheduled to consider amendments to Tacoma’s paid sick leave law on Tuesday, Sept. 19th.

The amendments are necessary because last November, the state’s voters approved Initiative 1433, which changed statewide employment standards by increasing state minimum wage and adding paid sick leave.

Tacoma’s local minimum wage will not be impacted until at least 2019; however, amendments to Tacoma Municipal Code will be needed this year to align the City code with the State’s paid sick leave law. The new State law takes effect on January 1, 2018.

Staff received a recommendation from the Government Performance and Finance Committee in May for the amendments to be considered by the full council.
