Video: Why Should Employers Consider Offering Paid Sick Leave?

As more and more states and cities adapt paid sick leave laws or ordinances, employers that operate in multiple states will increasingly find themselves with a section of their workforce covered by such laws.  Might it be easier and simpler for such employers to adopt a global policy, extending paid leave to all of  its employees?  What are the benefits to employers for providing paid leave?

In her recent presentation at BLR’s Advanced Employment Issues Symposium (AEIS),  Susan Fentin, JD of Skoler, Abbot and Presser P.C., addresses the growing trend of paid leave laws and addresses these questions and discusses other concerns employers may have about implementing paid leave laws in their organizations.
