Now that Colorado and Oregon have active paid family and medical leave programs, and with paid family and medical leave becoming a reality in four more states in the coming years, employers need to be ready for continued compliance challenges and state nuances. Are your policies updated? What about HR procedures? Handbooks? In this presentation, our experts will walk you through what to expect in the coming years, and what you can start doing in 2024. Our presenters will share some pointers on how to prepare your organization to manage risk appropriately and comply with the new laws.
