Return of two initiatives anticipated when lawmakers open a new session

The 30th Hawaii State Legislature opens for business on January 16, 2019, with two immediate challenges for small business.

Defeating Employer-Paid Sick Leave
NFIB/Hawaii opposes mandatory employer-paid sick leave as not economically or logistically feasible, especially for part-time workers, because Hawaii’s Prepaid Healthcare Act continues to provide for workers over 20 1/2 hours per week.
Stopping Predictive Scheduling
Proposals to require employers to give a minimum of 10 days written notice of employees’ schedules or pay the employees two times their normal wage threaten employer-employee flexibility.
