Paid Sick Leave: How To Comply with State and Federal Regulations

Employees should not have to make impossible choices between caring for one's own or a loved ones’ health or receiving a paycheck. Yet currently, there is no federal requirement that employees (other than federal contractors) be provided paid sick leave.

In the absence of a federal mandate, paid sick days legislation has been enacted at state and local levels, subjecting employers to a complicated patchwork of paid sick leave laws.

The result: employers are subjected to a multitude of obligations, many of which are confusing, and, in some cases, contradictory. But as an employer, it’s your responsibility to protect your organization and avoid fines by complying with local paid sick leave laws.

Join this timely webinar, nationally-recognized HR expert, Diane L. Dee will give you a comprehensive view of the current paid-sick-leave landscape and teach you how to avoid litigation and enforcement actions. Additionally, Diane will provide participants with information on how paid sick leave legislation can affect an organization’s current sick leave policies and will outline ways to ease administrative burdens.
