Denver voters could be asked whether to require businesses to give paid sick leave to all employees.
Backers of a ballot proposal to do that say they’ve got enough signatures to get it on Denver’s ballot in November. They plan to turn in the nearly 4,000 petition signatures on Tuesday afternoon.
The proposal would apply to businesses of all sizes. Companies with fewer than 10 employees would have to offer five days of sick leave but larger employers would have to provide nine days. Similar proposals have failed to pass at the state Legislature.
