The group tasked with studying the issue of citywide sick leave — and providing recommendations to the City Council — has begun its work.
At its first meeting Friday afternoon, the 15-member Workplace Regulations Partnership began planning for a series of listening sessions and discussions it will hold through the end of February, when it forwards its ideas to the council. Members of the group, which has four additional alternate members, are workers, business owners, labor leaders and the heads of business groups.
The group has not formalized the dates and times of listening sessions, which will include invited guests and also be open to the public. It did set a target for wrapping up the work: Feb. 22, two days before the proposal would be presented to the council’s Committee of the Whole.
