Why should you attend?

Do you offer paid sick leave to your employees? Currently, eight states, plus the District of Columbia, and over twenty localities have paid/earned sick/safe leave laws on their books - and that number is growing - so soon you may not have a choice.

Mandated paid sick/safe leave is gaining support. On September 7, 2015 President Obama signed a new executive order, granting up to 7 days of paid sick leave per year to employees working for federal government contractors.

On March 13, 2017, the Health Families Act, legislation that would grant many employees seven days of paid sick leave annually was introduced in Congress. 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.

In this webinar we will discuss developments related to paid sick leave and how they may affect your daily operations and workplace policies, and some recommendations for administering/managing PTO.
