City Employers Facing Paid Sick Days
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 10/06/11 10:15 am | updated: 10/06/11 10:15 am
A bill requiring all city employers to provide paid sick leave was vetoed by Mayor Nutter in June, but a different plan received City Council committee approval this week.

The bill, which would require the city and employers with city contracts, funding or leases, to provide up to seven earned sick days a year and would be a part of the living-wage and benefits law.

This bill affects fewer employers, is different from the previous bill and this plan, has nine co-sponsors.

To override a mayoral veto, the bill would need 12 votes. Council will likely vote on the bill next Thursday.

"This bill only applies to those people who receive city money or support after July 1, 2012," Wilson Goode Jr. said. "So if people don't want to be covered by the bill, then they simply shouldn't seek that assistance from the city."

Those subject to the bill include public agencies receiving contracts for $10,000 or more from the city, city financial-aid recipients, recipients of city leases, concessions, franchises, city subcontractors that employ more than 25 workers, nonprofit service contractors receiving more than $100,000, and for-profit service contractors receiving $10,000 or more a year with annual gross receipts of more than $1 million.
Council will likely vote on the bill next Thursday.

City Finance Director Rob Dubow warned that the measure would be costly to the city, having an impact on contracting responsibilities and job-creation while possibly shrinking the pool of contractors.

Advocates stressed the need for a bill that supports working families.
