Over the past few years, a number of state and local paid leave laws have been introduced across the country. These laws can present challenges to employers, especially those with remote employees. 

Participants in this webinar will learn about:

  • Recent developments in employee leave laws in Maryland and the District of Columbia. Specifically, this webinar will cover paid leave under the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act (Sick and Safe Leave), the Maryland Time to Care Act, and the D.C. Universal Paid Leave Amendment Act.
  • Types of leave covered
  • Other states that have enacted paid leave laws
  • Best practices

We anticipate this webinar being most useful for employers with employees residing in or working in Maryland or DC.
