Webinar Recording: The Evolution of Paid Family and Medical Leave

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Seven new states have passed paid family and medical leave (PFML) laws this year — bringing the total to 22 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Employers are becoming the trusted go-to resource for their employees when seeking guidance in navigating leave options; they are also being tasked with the complex challenge of ensuring multi-state compliance. In this session, we focused on how PFML is dominating conversations as employers seek to understand new laws and how to integrate PFML into their existing benefits framework.

We unpacked the intricate tapestry of leave programs, highlighting their distinctions and similarities. By grasping the shared elements among state plans, employers can more effortlessly navigate the differences. By the end of this session, participants were equipped with insights to effectively navigate these programs, support employees in need of leave, and stay updated with the latest trends in this domain.
