Commonwealth Court Upholds County Court Decision on Sick Leave

The Commonwealth Court has upheld the December 2015 decision by the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas that struck down the City of Pittsburgh’s ordinance on paid sick leave.  We wrote about the proposal several times in 2015, including a piece that looked at the laws cited by the City as justification for passing the ordinance.

The City has indicated it will appeal the Commonwealth Court’s decision, with the next step being the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  The Court upheld another ruling by the Common Pleas Court related to a requirement on training for staff in commercial buildings in the City.
