The U.S. is one of the only developed countries lacking a mandate for income protection to employees who need to take time off to care for themselves and their families. As a result, states and municipalities are looking to ensure protection for employees now more than ever. Where state and municipal mandates conflict with existing time off policies and practices, employers are left to sort through their own compliance while ensuring their programs still attract and retain the best employees.

Brycie Repphun from The Partners Group and Kimberly Mashburn from The Hartford took a look at the current landscape of Paid Family Leave.

During this webcast we focused on the following:

  • Discussed current and evolving federal, state, and municipal regulations impacting Paid Sick Leave, Paid Parental Leave and Paid Family Leave
  • Dove into recent studies and surveys highlighting the growing trend of Employer-Funded Paid Family and Paid Parental Leaves
  • Provided an overview of the process your organization can follow to ensure your Paid Time Off programs remain compliant
  • Celebrated 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
