2017 Leave Management Survey: Responses to Expanding Compliance Mandates

Expanding Compliance MandatesThe 2017 DMEC Employer Leave Management Survey white paper, available to members on the DMEC website, provides a deep review of results from the expanded survey.

Approximately one-third of the 1,203 employers who participated in the survey operate under the fragmented patchwork of state and local paid sick leave laws, now in more than 40 jurisdictions, including 10 states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.

Also, paid family leave laws are in place in California, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island, and Washington state’s new program begins paying benefits in 2020. The District of Columbia has both paid sick and family leave laws. Add to this that 11 states authorize at least some workers who already have paid sick days to use them to care for certain family members: California, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. 1

The survey outlines the employer response to these new compliance mandates, as well as the ever-expanding scope of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
