Have you ever had the opportunity to adopt “just cause” policies as an employer? If so, did you adopt that policy? Why or why not?

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

No, I have not had this opportunity as an employer. However, yes, I will actively support due process rights for all
employees. Compounded with Austin’s affordability crisis, loss of employment can put households in serious
jeopardy. It is important to ensure that Austin employers fulfill their legal and contractual obligations when a worker is terminated.
