San Antonio's Paid Sick Leave Delayed Until Decemeber

5 hours ago

A Bexar county judge has delayed San Antonio’s paid sick leave ordinance until December 1.

The ordinance was set to take effect next Thursday, August 1.

Earlier this month several business groups sued the city of San Antonio over the ordinance.

However, last week the city and the business groups came to a decision to delay the ordinance. The city said the delay would provide more time to refine it.

The Texas Organizing Project and Move Texas intervened in court against the delay. The two organizations helped gather the signatures to create the paid sick leave ordinance. 

This morning Judge Sol Casseb approved the agreement between the city and business groups.

A lawyer representing the Texas Organizing Project said they would evaluate their next steps.
