Employee Leave Benefits: How to Ensure Compliance and Stay Competitive
until January 01, 0001

Staying competitive in a tight labor market is driving change in all aspects of employee retention.

We are seeing a shift from traditional benefits like health insurance and 401k to those that focus more on overall employee well-being. Among them are employee leave benefits that offer more more work/life balance. And, with more employees working remotely, spread out over multiple states with different laws, compliance is becoming increasingly complex.

There is so much to be aware of and understand: federal laws governing employee leave including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); Title VII of the Civil Rights Act in leaves involving religious accommodations; nearly 400 state leave laws that go beyond federal requirements, and local level rules like San Francisco’s Paid Parental Leave Ordinance (PPLO, or SFPPLO).

 As employers expand their employee leave programs, understanding how to maintain compliance is critical. 

 In this webinar you will learn:

  • To apply employee leave as a benefit to attract and retain talent.
  • To understand the major leave laws.
  • Tips to remain compliant.
  • Pitfalls to avoid.
  • How to ensure equity and inclusivity in leave programs?
  • How to train managers in responding to employee leave requests?
