Sick & Safe Leave Information Sessions


(From Event information Flyer)

The updated Sick & Safe Leave Ordinance will take effect on December 1, 2019. Sick & Safe Leave is a law in San Antonio that requires most employees in San Antonio be given time off needed to be absent from work because the employee or the employee’s family member experiences illness, injury, stalking, domestic abuse, sexual assault or otherwise requires medical or health care, including preventive care, and mental healthcare. 

The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District (Metro Health), will be hosting eight free information sessions in different areas of the City of San Antonio which will allow employers and employees to learn more about the updated Sick & Safe Leave ordinance. “Metro Health is available to help employers and employees learn about the new updates to the Sick & Safe Leave ordinance.  Our goal is to provide education, technical assistance and tools that businesses need to successfully implement the ordinance by December 1, 2019,” said Jennifer Herriott, Interim Director of Health.

Advance registration is requested for all sessions.  To attend one of the free Sick & Safe Leave Information Sessions please register at: . Upon request Spanish translation or interpretation for the hard of hearing will be available. 

More information on the Sick & Safe Leave Ordinance can be found at  and questions can be submitted to, or by calling 311 or 210-207-8458.
