City Council Committee expands Wage & Benefits Law

City Council’s Committee on Commerce & Economic Development has approved the Leaseholder Wage and Benefits Bill, introduced by City Councilman W. Wilson Goode, Jr., to broaden the definition of employers subject to New Minimum Wage and Benefits Ordinance.

The Leaseholder Wage and Benefits Bill amends the New Minimum Wage and Benefits Ordinance to establish that a tenant or leaseholder of a City Financial Aid Recipient who occupies property or uses equipment or property that is improved or developed as a result of the City aid shall be considered a “City Financial Aid Recipient” and shall be covered for the same period as the City Financial Aid Recipient of which they are a tenant or leaseholder.
