Help establish sick leave for Spokane’s workforce

Earlier this month, the City Council passed Resolution No. 2015-0038 which establishes a working group to provide recommendations to City Council on an earned sick and safe leave policy for the City of Spokane (city-wide). We're now accepting applications for people to serve on this group.

The goal of the working group is to provide specific recommendations to the Council on elements of an appropriate policy for the City that considers community health and well-being, preventing the spread of disease, economic equality, business vitality, family and personal safety related to domestic violence, and regional competitiveness.

The Council will encourage the working group to review elements of other city or state policies, but also to provide policy recommendations that consider local business and workforce needs.

If you are interested in serving in this stakeholder group, please turn in your application to Debra Robole at by Friday, May 1.
