Legislative Actions Supersede Ballot Proposals On Employee Issues

Oct 20, 2018

From MiARA
Three initiative petitions that had been proposed for the ballot were enacted into law by the legislature, and therefore will not appear on the ballot.

Repeal of Prevailing Wages: The state legislature voted to enact the proposal to repeal Michigan prevailing wage laws on June 6, 2018, rendering the proposal ineligible to appear on the ballot, and taking away the chance for Michigan voters to decide this important issue directly.

Michigan One Fair Wage: The legislature passed a gradual increase of the hourly minimum wage from $10.00 in 2019 to $12.00 in 2022. This has replaced the ballot proposal that had been set to appear on the November ballot.

MI Time to Care: Michigan lawmakers passed into law a requirement that employers provide sick leave for personal or family health reasons, subject to certain conditions.
