One of the most difficult things for human resource and absence management professionals to do is to keep up with changing state and local laws. Below is a brief summary of some new laws of interest:


Arizona voters passed a paid sick leave law.  The law provides up to 40 hours of paid sick time per year to employees of large employers (15 or more employees) and 24 hours for employees of small employers.  Employees accrue paid sick leave at the rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked.  The law is effective in 2017.
