Watch this 2-minute video

Navigating the complexities of the 2024 Paid Sick Leave Laws is crucial for all employers, including those with part-time employees. Our webinar, 'Critical Compliance Alert: 2024 Law Updates You Can't Ignore,' offers vital insights into these upcoming changes, ensuring your business remains compliant.

Understanding Paid Sick Leave for All Employees

The webinar clarifies that the new Paid Sick Leave Laws apply to both full-time and part-time employees. An important point discussed is the eligibility timeline, where employees are entitled to the new five days of sick leave after 90 days of employment. This update marks a significant shift from the previous 24-hour rule, impacting how businesses plan and implement their leave policies.

Choosing Between Accrual and Lump Sum Methods

Expert Jason Yu delves into the specifics of accrual versus lump sum methods for granting sick leave. The lump sum method allows employers to provide the entire sick leave entitlement at the 90-day mark, offering simplicity and ease of management. However, for part-time employees with fewer hours, the accrual method might be more appropriate, requiring careful calculation of hours worked to ensure compliance.

Tailoring Sick Leave Policies to Your Workforce

This webinar snippet emphasizes the importance of choosing the right method based on your employees' working hours. For those regularly surpassing the threshold, a lump sum approach could simplify administration. In contrast, the accrual method may suit employees with variable hours, highlighting the need for a tailored approach to leave management.

Stay Informed and Compliant

For a comprehensive understanding of how to adapt your sick leave policies in light of the 2024 law changes and to ensure your practices are inclusive of all employee types, watch the full webinar. Gain the knowledge to navigate these updates confidently and keep your company compliant.
