Paid Sick Leave:
A Multi-State Update for Employers
Your guide to paid sick leave laws in all the states in which you operate
In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn how to:
Understand the key provisions of the varying state sick leave laws
Uncover the common threads and key differences among the state laws regarding paid sick leave
Discover best practices to ensure compliance with paid sick leave in all the states in which you operate
Master the different requirements in each state when it comes to paid sick leave
Unless your company is a federal contractor or sub-contractor, there is no uniform sick leave law for employers. Instead, almost every state and many localities have passed paid sick leave laws, leaving many employers scrambling to navigate a patchwork of laws. This is especially confusing for companies with multiple locations.
To make it more complicated, the interpretations of these laws are subject to change, and a number of them have recently undergone significant amendments.
So what’s an employer to do? How can you keep up with all the changes?
In this webinar, we will explore the key provisions of the different states’ paid sick leave laws. We will discuss the common threads, general trends and changes, and provide some tips as to how to deal with multiple, overlapping and often-changing laws.
