NFIB Hawaii Small Business Victories
From NFIB-Hawaii, March 14, 2018
Defeated Mandatory Employer-Paid Sick Leave
NFIB/Hawaii helped to defeat the proposals to require employer paid sick leave for all employees. This would have included part-time employees who made at least $15 per hour.
Defeated Minimum Wage Increases
NFIB/Hawaii helped to defeat a proposal to increase the minimum wage up to $22 per hour.
Defeat Employer-Paid Sick Leave
NFIB/Hawaii opposes mandatory employer paid sick leave as not economically or logistically feasible, especially for part-time workers – on the grounds that Hawaii’s Prepaid Healthcare Act continues to provide for workers over 20 1/2 hours per week.
This bill would require employers to give a minimum of ten days written notice of employees schedules or pay the employees two times their normal wage. This bill greatly threatens employer flexibility.
