The United States of America is one of the only developed countries lacking a mandate for income protection for employees when they need to miss work to care for themselves and their families. As a result, States and Municipalities have taken up the call to ensure protection for employees. Where State and Municipal mandates conflict with existing time off policies and practices, employers are left to sort through how to keep their programs compliant while ensuring that these programs support efforts to attract and retain the best employees.

Join Brycie Repphun from The Partners Group and Kimberly Mashburn from The Hartford as we take a look into the current landscape of Paid Family Leave.

During this webcast we will focus on the following:

  • Discuss current and evolving federal, state, and municipal regulations impacting Paid Sick Leave, Paid Parental Leave and Paid Family Leave
  • Dive into recent studies and surveys highlighting the growing trend of Employer-funded Paid Family and Paid Parental Leaves
  • Provide an overview of the process your organization can follow to ensure your Paid Time Off programs remain compliant
  • Celebrate the successes of employers who have turned mandates into opportunities to create innovative and competitive time off programs to enhance their Talent Acquisition and Retention Strategies
