  • 90 minutes

Paid Family Leave as well as Paid Sick Leave has gained momentum in many States and localities. Many of these laws impose obligations well beyond those imposed by the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). For those of you with employees in more than one State, the myriad of obligations increases exponentially—especially during the time of COVID. This webinar will provide an overview of those States that have passed Paid Family Leave and Paid Sick Leave laws and their key components.

Session Highlights:

  • Where paid sick and family leave laws have passed or are being considered across the country 

  • Requirements concerning carryover and notice/posting requirements PTO recommended practices on tricky issues, including partial-day absences, use of accrued PTO during furloughs, a “use it or lose it” policy, and structuring your PTO bank 

  • Combining PTO leave with protected leave under FMLA – the when and how to do it;

  • What you need to know before changing PTO accrual rates 

  • Cashing out unused time -- PTO counts as a wage under state law PTO and the exempt employee:

  • When you can dock their pay without jeopardizing the exemption

  • Legal ways to institute caps on vacation banks 

Why You Should Attend:

Do you offer paid sick and/or family medical leave to your employees? Currently, eight states, plus the District of Columbia have Paid Family Leave Laws. 13 states, plus the District of Columbia and many localities have paid/earned sick/safe leave laws on their books - and that number is growing - so soon you may not have a choice. Add to that, with COVID-19, employers are dealing with a patchwork of overlapping and at times, seeming conflicting laws—especially those with employees in more than one State! 

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 family and sick leave and how they may affect your daily operations and workplace policies, and some recommendations for administering/managing PTO.
