Amid the craziness that is 2020, employers need to be preparing for the rollout of the paid family and medical leave insurance program. Certain aspects of the program become effective in just a few short months — January 1, 2021.

To that end, my firm is hosting the first of several webinars this month on key employment law topics.

First up: A conversation with Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Authority CEO, Andrea Barton Reeves this Thursday, October 8, 2020.  You can register for free here.  

In this hour-long program, we will touch on what employers need to know how and find out information from Ms. Barton Reeves on the very latest developments.

In advance of that program, employers should also seek out the new Paid FMLA website which just went live from the authority.

There’s a section on frequently asked questions which may be your first visit, but other sections for employers as well.  I hope to do a deeper dive into this after our webinar this week.

Finally, there are other upcoming programs in our free webinar series as well:

  • October 15: Free Speech in the Workplace: Politics, Pandemic, Social Media & Protests (featuring my colleague Julie Fay and me)
  • October 22: Managing a Rapidly Shifting Workforce – Work-from-Home and Hybrid Considerations
  • October 29: Hot Topics in Labor & Employment Law

All of the programs are at noon and again, all are free to all.  Again, you can register here.
