Nonprofit Listening Session: Minneapolis Paid Sick Leave Policy

In October, the City of Minneapolis considered the “Working Families Agenda,” a set of proposals that would establish standards for workplace scheduling and provide sick time to all employees. Many Minneapolis businesses, nonprofits and employees weighed in on those proposals, which ultimately were tabled for future consideration. In December the city developed a “Workforce Partnership Group” of stakeholders to consider and propose a sick time policy for Minneapolis. MCN’s public policy director Susie Brown is a member of that group, representing the nonprofit sector.

The Workforce Partnership Group is holding a series of listening sessions for the public, and for specific stakeholder groups. We hope that you will join us for the discussion designed for the nonprofit sector—both employers and employees. This session will be held from 3:30 - 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 13. It is important that a wide variety of employer and employee voices are heard as the city considers workforce policies. The nonprofit sector is extremely diverse and employs a wide variety of people in different roles.
