Webinar: ID# 1036566
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
With so many states and cities now enacting paid sick leave laws, employers may be left scrambling to understand how newly passed legislation affects their organizations and intersects with other types of leave.

These new laws have a far-reaching impact, affecting employers operating in single states, multi-state employers, and those with nationwide operations.

In many cases the new laws are quite expansive, covering not just medical issues, but also granting leave needed to manage domestic violence or stalking-related issues (i.e., safe time) or time needed for other necessities, for example, to attend a meeting about a child's education plan.

Recently, New Jersey and Michigan enacted statewide paid sick leave laws. Also, in places such as New York City, employers have additional paid sick and safe time leave compliance requirements that recently took effect, too.

Finally, keeping track of and managing employees' paid sick and safe time leave can be an added challenge for employers, especially since they also have to understand and manage other types of leave, such as those protected under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). A technical mistake in administering paid sick leave and other time can result in costly and damaging legal repercussions.
