As City Council considers legislation that would require businesses of all sizes to offer paid sick time to both full and part-time employees, the GPCC would like to know more about how this bill, if enacted, will impact your business.  We believe that the legislation is well intended, but it adds another cost of doing business for firms located in Philadelphia or those with employees in Philadelphia. No neighboring municipalities have similar requirements, and therefore the bill puts Philadelphia firms at a competitive disadvantage with those firms located in the suburbs.

Please take 1-2 minutes to complete our short and simple survey to help us better understand your business as it relates to employee time off and other benefits.  Furthermore, please join many of your business peers in writing your Councilmembers urging them to oppose this bill: Click here to email your Councilmembers directly.
