By: Jen McCormick, Esq. As many states (and cities) are starting to beginning to enact paid sick and/or leave time regulations, employers will need to understand the impact and implications. The regulations vary by state (and city), but require eligible employers to grant certain employees paid sick time. Various regulations are in effect already, and some are yet to become effect. Regardless of the effective date of these regulations, it’s clear that employers will need to make changes and consider how the regulations will impact their employer handbooks, plan documents (i.e. continuation of coverage) and stop loss. Now is the time to get the ball rolling in reviewing these materials so employers can be prepared.
