Arizona’s New Paid Sick Leave In Effect July 1: How To Revise PTO Policies And Ensure Proper Ongoing Administration

Webinar: ID# 1025065
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Arizona’s new paid sick leave law, Prop 206, goes into effect July 1, 2017 and, unlike the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), it applies to nearly every employer with Arizona based employees, not just those with 50 employees in a 75-mile radius.

With just a couple of months before the new law takes effect, now is the time to make sure your paid sick leave policies and administration practices comply with the new law. Even if you already have generous paid leave benefits, you have work to do in harmonizing your policies with Prop 206’s requirements.

Join us for a webinar explaining the new paid leave compliance requirements going into effect July 1 under Prop 206, how you may need to amend your existing paid time off (PTO) policies and practices to ensure compliance, recordkeeping and notice requirements, how the new requirements interplay with other compliance obligations under the FMLA and much more.

BLR’s virtual workshop, Arizona’s New Paid Sick Leave Law Going into Effect July 1: How to Revise PTO Policies and Ensure Proper Ongoing Administration, is a half-day live event with Q&A that will explain:
  • How to ensure that your paid time off policies and practices comply with Prop 206’s requirements ahead of the July 1 effective date
  • Best practices for requesting supporting documentation in support of Prop 206 leave requests—when you can ask for information and when you cannot, and considerations for deciding whether you should ask for it
  • Essential notice, posting, and recordkeeping requirements under Prop 206
  • How to ensure proper tracking of accrued and used paid sick leave
  • Coordinating paid sick leave with other laws that may be applicable, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), or workers’ compensation law
