Paid Time Off Policy Development and Updates: Carry Over, Use It or Lose It, and Paid Parental, Sick, and Safe Time - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how emerging legal issues impact paid time off policies, how best to implement the leave policies, and what to do if you suspect abuse.


Paid time off (PTO) policies are becoming more and more prevalent among companies of all sizes, and more employees are looking for these types of benefits—whether or not an applicable state or local law requires them to provide it.

But, parental, sick, safe time, and baby bonding leave may come with legal risks as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission wants to ensure that such policies are applied equally to the workforce.

And, for the most part, paid time off can work well for employers when employees are able to use their allotted sick time, personal time, or vacation time as needed.  When designing paid time off policies, however, employers need to consider such issues as whether the allotted time off can be rolled over from year to year, or if it’s a “use it or lose it” plan. There are problems with both approaches, and some states will not allow employers to implement a use it or lose it plan.

Use this on-demand webinar with Attorney Patrice Nagle, who is well-versed in paid leave and the accompanying legal issues.

After attending this webinar you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize do’s and don’ts for drafting paid time off leave policies, and deciding which approach you want to take
  • Ensure that your paid time off policy is equitable and doesn’t spark “based on sex” EEOC scrutiny 
  • Spot “red flags” concerning leave time, such as suspected parental or sick leave fraud
  • Manage carry over and use it or lose it issues
  • Recognize the pros and cons of unlimited PTO
  • Identify when paid safe time leave may be necessary for a domestic abuse victim and correctly monitor such leave
  • And much more!
