Workforce Tip of the Week, sponsored by Spectrum Employee Services: Family leave laws gaining momentum

    More and more states are creating legislation that requires  paid sick/family leave. Currently eight states have paid leave in place: California, Connecticut, D.C., Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon and Rhode Island. Oregon is the most recent to update its legislation providing 100% wage reimbursement up to $1,215 in weekly benefits. As paid leave gains strength, so does the complexity of tracking it. Payroll teams must be strategic in how they manage federal and state rules. Leveraging technology is critical to making sure compliance is maintained and liability is reduced.
