Master the latest in emerging compliance obligations related to paid sick and family leaves.
Paid leave benefits are a perk that can help organizations recruit and retain high-quality workers-but it's important to consider the costs. You need to establish a paid time off policy that works for both employees and your budget.
You also need to keep an eye on the law. Legally mandated paid sick leave is gaining support in states and municipalities around the country. Currently, five states have paid/earned sick leave laws on their books-with three more becoming effective in 2017 or 2018-along with over a dozen cities, with more being added all the time.
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 on June 1 to learn how the recent developments related to paid sick leave affect your daily operations and workplace policies. Also, get 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.
You'll learn:
* What an effective, legal PTO policy generally looks like
* Where paid sick leave laws have passed or are being considered
* Requirements employers may be subjected to concerning carryover and notice/posting requirements
