Minnesota Businesses Support Earned Sick and Safe Time

Add your name below to join the growing list of Minnesota businesses supporting Earned Sick and Safe Time.

As small and independent business owners, we care about our employees and their families and are committed to improving the quality of life for workers across the region.  Earned sick time as a basic work standard is good for businesses like ours--it will strengthen our community and local economy. By establishing a modest floor for earned sick and safe time, we can work towards creating a more just and equitable Minnesota.

We want to help address the problem that many people in our city need to stay home when they or their children are sick but can't afford to miss work.  We believe that establishing a modest floor for earned sick and safe time as a basic workplace standard is not only the right thing to do, it makes good business sense.

We support a city-wide ordinance that includes:

Accrued Hours: Employees earn sick days by accruing one hour for every 30 hours worked.  The number of hours accrued should be a strong universal standard, so that all workers in the city have access to sick days, regardless of business size

Use:  We want to guarantee that every worker in our city earns paid time off to care for themselves or their families when they get sick or are threatened with domestic violence

Integrating Existing Benefit Programs: Businesses already providing any type of job-protected days—paid time off, vacation, personal days, etc.— should be determined in compliance with the law as long as they give the same amount of time required by the law for sick days purposes.

No Payout/ Portability: Employees should not receive payout of unused sick time upon leaving, and hours should not be portable from business to business.
