Paid Sick & Family Leave: A Guide To Managing PTO In Compliance With New Employee Protections

About This Course:
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.
