Minneapolis & St. Paul Sick/Safe Time Policies for the Performing Arts
April 22 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Sick and safe time are laws in Minneapolis and St. Paul protecting time off work. This local law creates access to sick and safe time for all, including part time workers.
It has been a little over a year since the new St. Paul and Minneapolis Sick and Safe Time ordinances went in to effect. As performing arts practitioners who work in or administer performing arts organizations, these new policies may come with additional questions regarding the unique nature of our field. For more information, visit the Minneapolis and St. Paul information pages about this topic.
Join the Minnesota Theater Alliance and Technicians for Change as we welcome Brian Walsh, from the City of Minneapolis for a brief presentation regarding the policies, and time for an industry-specific question and answer session.
This event is intended for both workers and administrators, to gain clarity on how these policies are to be implemented in the performing arts industry. Workers (technicians, designers, performers, administrators, stage managers, front of house, box office) in the performing arts, managing/executive directors, technical directors, production managers, human resources, operations managers, are encouraged to attend.
This event will be held at Hamline Midway Library, in the Auditorium.
Space is limited, so please RSVP.
