Pending Workplace Policy Proposals: Paid Sick Days and Family and Medical Leave Insurance
29 February, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
An overview of these and other relevant topics under discussion in the VT Legislature. Main Street Alliance of VT works with small VT business owners on crafting and advocating for public policy issues in the state to reflect the interconnected nature of small businesses, workers, and our local communities. It’s likely the legislature will pass a new paid sick days law this year and consider a paid family and medical leave insurance proposal in the ’17/’18 biennium. Learn about the current state of the paid sick days discussion, the details of the proposal, and have your paid sick days implementation questions answered. We’ll also talk about paid family and medical leave, existing state models, and what a model could look like in VT.
