Small Businesses with less than 50 Employees Exempted
Small Business Changes to Paid Sick Leave – Minimum Wage Mandates
NFIB’s efforts were successful in pulling an extreme Paid Sick Leave employer mandate and a Minimum Wage hike from the statewide election ballot in 2018. If these proposals went to the ballot and were passed by voters, Michigan would have been stuck with the most stringent paid sick leave and minimum wage employer mandate in the country. In the last days of session in 2018, NFIB was successful in changing these bad laws to help small business. The changes included an exemption from the paid sick leave mandate for an employer with less than 50 employees.
