Paid Sick Leave City Ordinance - What You Should Know

 Registration is closed for this event

Please join us for a full debrief on the proposed Paid Sick Leave City Ordinance.

The Albuquerque Coalition for a Healthy Economy (A.C.H.E.) recently announced a lawsuit against the City of Albuquerque in State District Court, members of A.C.H.E. believe the proposed ordinance is a fraud on city voters.

Voters will be forced to decide on the ordinance during the October 3rd Municipal Election. If enacted the ordinance will be the most expensive and expansive in the nation, leading to lost job opportunities and businesses to relocate.

Presently, the healthy workforce ordinance is logrolling on steroids,” said Pat Rogers, attorney representing the Albuquerque Coalition for a Healthy Economy, “Voters who may favor the basic premise or parts of the basic proposal, will certainly disagree with the small print details hidden in the ordinance.”

Most employers’ existing paid time off (PTO) policies will not be in compliance with the strict requirements of the Ordinance. So, employees will lose their PTO and have to revert to sick leave and vacation time.” said Carol Wight, CEO of the New Mexico Restaurant Association and a member of the coalition.

Implementation of this law would have a significant negative impact on Albuquerque employers. If adopted, the Ordinance would not be subject to revision or compromise, and would go into effect without any public hearings or consideration of the harmful details.
