Michigan’s New Paid Sick Leave Act: The Top Ten Things Employers Should Know (Morning Session)
February 5, 2019
Rescheduled from January 29, 2019
Please join us for a complimentary webinar!
The Michigan Legislature recently enacted, and later amended, a new paid sick leave law – the first of its kind in the state and it becomes effective in just a few months. The new law was enacted and amended in an unusual manner, which has led to much uncertainty and conflicting information in the media. This webinar, presented by Rebecca Davies and Brett Rendeiro, will outline the current status of Michigan’s Paid Sick Leave Act and identify the top ten things all Michigan employers should know about the new law. Topics to be addressed include: to whom does the law apply; how is paid sick leave accrued and used; can unused time be carried over to the next year; how does this law inter-relate to the FMLA and ADA; what changes to an employer’s policies should be considered, and more.
