PTO or a Paid Time Off programs that combine vacation and sick leave into one bucket of time off was the trend for many years. Due to mandatory paid sick leave laws, many organizations are considering moving away from PTO back to a Sick/Vacation plan. Fourteen states and the District of Columbia require paid sick leave. Twenty-six municipalities also have mandatory paid sick leave laws. Fourteen states will pass new legislation soon to require businesses to offer paid sick leave to employees. Other states will follow suit in the next year or so and a Federal Law requiring paid sick leave seems to be getting closer and closer to being passed.

Why should you attend this webinar?

Do you have a Federal Contract? If so, you are required to have a sick leave policy. Do you have a contract with a municipality? If so, have you checked to see if you have to offer paid sick leave? 

The scary thing is that many of these laws require the inclusion of part time employees who work as little as 10 hours a week. If you have employees in multiple states and municipalities, the nightmare is that most of these laws are different and creates a problem trying to be in compliance with all of the and maintaining a semblance of internal equity. 

With the passage of these laws, PTO may become obsolete as many states require payment of unused PTO upon termination; however, none of the states that require paid sick leave require payment of unused sick leave upon termination. The cost saving of moving back to a sick/vacation plan could be astononical.

In this webinar, we will be reviewing the transition from a PTO policy back to a sick/vacation time off program and understanding the benefits of making this change.

As these laws take shape, it is imperative that Human Resources professionals and managers with employees in multiple states know the rules they must comply with.
