The Rapidly Changing Landscape of Paid Leave: Local Update, Trends and Predictions, Best Practices Recommendations

 This program has been submitted to HRCI and SHRM for review.

 

States, counties and local governments all across the country, including in the DC Metro Area, are rapidly introducing and enacting paid leave laws. HR professionals face new challenges in compliance monitoring, meeting implementation obligations, and getting out in front of news headlines and the employee questions that follow.
 
Kara Ariail and Kevin D’Olivo, employment law attorneys with Holland & Knight LLP, will share a local update regarding the status of paid leave laws in Maryland, Virginia and DC. They will also provide insight on what we can expect to see regarding the future of local paid leave initiatives, and share best practices, both for implementing new laws and for minimizing implementation challenges for future laws.
