Family Friendly Workplace: How to Meet Emerging Paid Leave Obligations While Boosting Productivity and Employee Satisfaction
Charles S. Plumb
Earlier this year, President Obama granted federal employees six weeks of paid leave following the birth of a child. And paid leave legislation continues to emerge nationwide. As the family-friendly paid leave movement gains momentum, employers must be aware of their current and potential obligations and develop a framework for helping employees meet the growing demands of their busy lives.
Speaking at the 20th Annual Advanced Employment Issues Symposium in Las Vegas, McAfee & Taft labor and employment lawyer Charlie Plumb guides employers through the steps for implementing well-balanced family-friendly policies, including paid leave and workplace flexibility programs that meet current legal requirements and foster a culture of productivity and satisfaction among the workforce. Specific topics include:
- How multistate employers are mastering leave tracking and administration under new paid leave requirements
- The link between generous paid leave programs and retention
- Tips for crafting flexible work arrangements that get the job done
- Legal hurdles that arise from family friendly-based initiatives
- The relationship family-friendly policies, including generous leave policies, have on productivity and satisfaction
Presented by BLR – Business and Legal Resources, the Advanced Employment Issues Symposium is a national conference that brings in prestigious employment law attorneys who advise on critical legal compliance and also HR professionals discussing strategy essentials, including compensation and benefits.
