This week, we will learn the concept of five-step policy development. We will apply the five-step exercise to the case study of proposing paid personal time legislation in New York City. In this section, we will focus on the first two steps. First, we will identify the issue and examine what kinds of benefits and barriers there might be for providing paid personal time to employees. Second, we will learn how to research and gather information that would support this legislative idea. Research should include quantitative and qualitative analysis from various reports, news articles and existing legislation.
