Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce v. Milwaukee

Date: August 11, 2011

Circuit Court for Milwaukee County

Milwaukee required that all city businesses provide their employees with paid sick leave through the passage of a binding referendum. NFIB argued that the measure interferes with employers’ rights to negotiate mutually beneficial labor agreements with their employees and is an illegal extension of the Milwaukee’s authority into areas of law reserved to the state.

Status:  PENDING.  Amicus brief filed 01/28/09.  Circuit court granted MMAC summary judgment on October 14, 2010.  However, the Court of Appeals reversed and remanded the case back to the Circuit Court on March 24, 2011.
