Can you remember what your top HR priorities were in January and February before COVID-19 arrived? For many HR professionals, Paid Family Medical Leave (PFML) might have been on the top of your to-do list. While PFML may have become buried under requests for leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), it’s time to get back to preparing for PFML which became effective on January 1, 2021.
Our three-part PFML virtual workshop series was very popular and the sessions sold out. We know how busy employers are and to accommodate your needs, our PFML experts Mary McNally and Tom Jones, Esq. have recorded a copy of the series. Watch the series at your convenience. The three sessions are:
Session #1 – Rebuilding the PFML Knowledge Foundation
Join us for this session to review the provisions of Paid Family Medical Leave. Understand recent developments and what you need to be aware of as you prepare to implement PFML in your workplace on January 1.
Session #2 – Understanding Leave Scenarios
Join us for this session as we dive into real-life leave scenarios to help you prepare for January 1. Are you prepared to answer employee questions about eligibility, duration of leave, and whether the leave will be paid or unpaid? Do you know when to apply PFML, FMLA, EST, MPLA, or other types of leave separately or on an overlapping basis? We will discuss the thought process employers will need to go through at the onset of employee leave to manage the leave appropriately.
Session #3 -PFML Documentation and Recordkeeping
Paid Family Medical Leave will require new documentation for employees and employers. Join us to learn more about what information you can ask employees, where you should store this information, what information will be shared with the Department of Paid Family Medical Leave and how to proactively communicate with your employees.
