Mayor Harrell has sent the City Council a proposed ordinance that would end the mandated COVID-related “hazard pay” for grocery workers.
Under the bill’s terms, the hazard pay mandate would end on the effective date of the ordinance, typically 30 days after the Mayor signs it into law.
Employers would need to maintain the notice requirements of the hazard-pay mandate for an additional year, and the ordinance would stay on the books for an additional three years; this allows workers to discover and file a complaint if they have been denied the hazard pay by their employer.
