Paid Sick And Family Leave Hotbed: Multi-State Updates For Mastering Emerging Compliance Obligations
|Date / Time:
Do you offer paid sick leave to your employees? If not, you may soon have no choice but to do so. While any changes at the federal level could be on hold given legislative and presidential power shifts in Washington, D.C., mandated paid sick leave continues to gain support in states and municipalities around the country.
Right now, four states and the District of Columbia have paid/earned sick leave laws on their books with three more states’ laws becoming effective in 2017 or 2018. Add to this the local ordinances in more than 12 cities (with more being added all the time). Meanwhile, big-name brands such as American Express and Ikea have raised the bar by announcing they would increase their workers’ family leave benefits.
Given this uncertain, yet highly active environment, now is the time to anticipate the changes that you might need to make to your existing policies if paid sick leave comes to your jurisdiction.
Join us to learn how recent developments related to paid sick leave could affect your daily operations and workplace policies, best practices for administering PTO from accurately accounting for partial day absences to instituting vacation time caps, and how to identify other policies that could be affected by mandatory paid sick leave.

|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!
