Paid sick leave, additional family and medical leave, disability and parental leave – the number of leave entitlements at the state and local level keep proliferating. Compliance with this new legal landscape is tricky, and particularly so for employers with multi-jurisdictional workforces. The Hogan Lovells Employment team is here to help. On November 7 at 1 p.m. Eastern, we are hosting a one-hour live webinar to discuss the new laws and how employers can ensure compliance.

Our webinar – geared to in-house counsel and human resources staff but open to anyone – will unpack the common features of the new laws and highlight key differences across jurisdictions. We will provide tips for compliance with the patchwork of laws already on the books or pending, including the interplay of state paid leave benefits with employers’ own benefits plans and established unpaid leave rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and how to update policies and handbooks. Our panel of employment lawyers in California, New York, Massachusetts, and the D.C. region will prepare employers to avoid running afoul of this “new normal” and to correctly guide employees who approach their manager or Human Resources with the following scenarios:

  • I need a few days off because I am ill or injured.
  • I need time off to care for a family member in a medical crisis.
  • I need time off to deal with my own medical crisis.
  • I’m having a baby, how much time can I take?
  • Can I get additional time off under the FMLA or ADA?

We hope you will join us.
