SPEAKER: Tracy Thomas Boland
The “Grand Bargain” law passed this year and provides for an increased minimum wage and a new paid family and medical leave program. Find out what you need to know to prepare for these changes in 2019.
Speaking of illness, we will then discuss the sticky issues that medical leaves of absence present for all employers. Which laws apply to your workplace, when do you have to provide leaves of absence and how long do they need to be? We will answer all of these questions and any others you’d like to ask.
