Maryland Healthy Working Families Act: Impact on PTO Policies, Accruals, and Leave Banks - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with the new Maryland Healthy Families Act now in effect.

The Maryland Healthy Working Families Act took effect on February 11—are you in compliance?

Despite a just-released FAQ document from the Maryland DLLR, most affected employers still have questions about which employees are covered and when they qualify for paid leave.

Use this all-new on-demand webinar with Maryland attorney and the Editor of the Maryland Employment Law Letter Kevin McCormick, who will explain the practical implications the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act has on your workplace.

You’ll learn:

  • When leave is permissible due to an employee’s or family member’s situation
  • Your notice requirements under the Act
  • Which employers are subject to the Act and which of their employees are entitled to paid leave—and which aren’t, due to specific exclusions
  • How much paid leave time covered employees are entitled to
  • What the “safe” aspect of Maryland’s Healthy Working Families Act means, and the medical, mental health, domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault considerations employers need to know about
  • How to satisfy your obligations to provide covered employees with information about their safe/sick leave balance
  • Special considerations for employers operating in Montgomery County and why those in Prince George’s have fared better in terms of their compliance obligations
  • The two ways the Maryland Healthy Working Families Act is now being applied—including accrual rates for safe/sick leave and “rollover” considerations 
  • Whether you can “front-load” the full 40 hours of leave at the start of the calendar year
  • Notice employees must provide if they want to exercise their right to take this type of leave
  • Best practices for calculating accrual and pay rates
  • What happens if an employee with unused sick leave quits or gets fired
  • How this Act impacts existing vacation and/or paid time off policies
  • The penalties your organization could face for non-compliance
  • And more!
