Milwaukee sick leave law appeal to get hearing Wednesday

By Paul Snyder

The Wisconsin District IV Court of Appeals on Wednesday will hear oral arguments in the appeal of Milwaukee’s sick leave law.

The sick leave law, if enacted, would require workers get at least one hour of paid sick leave for every 30 hours worked in Milwaukee. Companies with fewer than 10 workers must offer at least five sick days, and larger companies must let employees accrue at least nine days.

Milwaukee County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Cooper last year ruled the sick leave law is unconstitutional.

The organization that lobbied to get sick leave approved by referendum, 9to5 Milwaukee, appealed the ruling.
