Paid Sick & Family Leave: A Guide To Managing PTO In Compliance With New Employee Protections
|Date / Time:
Do you offer paid sick leave to your employees? Currently, several states and a dozen cities have paid/earned sick leave laws on their books - and that number is growing - so soon you may not have a choice.
Mandated paid sick leave is gaining support. Last September, President Obama penned a new executive order which granted up to 7 days of paid sick leave per year to employees working for federal government contractors.
National paid sick leave legislation is also pending before Congress in the form of the Healthy Families Act, legislation that would grant many employees seven days of paid sick leave annually.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
