PTO Policies In California: How To Cut Abuse, Reduce Absenteeism And Manage Leaves Effectively In The Golden State
|Date / Time:
It used to be that vacation days were for vacations, sick days were for being sick, and personal days were for, well, everything else.
But now employers are increasingly making a shift to using a paid time off (PTO) model, where leave is just leave - a bank of hours that can be pulled from as needed, for whatever reason. In fact, 58 percent of employers now use a PTO bank instead of separate buckets for sick time and vacation time.
While employees appreciate the flexibility of a PTO plan, for you as an HR professional, the administration aspect can get tricky, particularly in California, where you need to worry about the state's complicated and employee-friendly wage and hour laws and leave rules.
Don't get tripped up. Instead, join us for an in-depth webinar covering everything you need to know about administering a PTO program in California.

|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.
