When Maine became the first state in the nation to enact a general paid leave statute, the January 1, 2021 effective date seemed a lifetime away. But then 2020 threw us a gigantic curveball that demanded all our attention. With newly issued regulations in hand and the effective date now only months away, employers cannot afford to procrastinate.
At this webinar, Pierce Atwood attorneys Charlie Einsiedler, Katy Rand, and Dan Strader shared everything employers need to know to craft compliant paid leave policies or adjust your existing policies to conform to the new law. The webinar included a breakout session, where attendees were given the choice to receive additional guidance tailored toward those with collective bargaining agreements or to learn more about ways to harmonize statutory paid leave with your company’s existing vacation or paid time off policy.
