UPDATE 6/21/2016: Recorded webinar now available on the CalChamber Store.
A live webinar on paid-time-off compliance will be hosted by the California Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, June 16.
Rules relating to how employees accrue paid time off (PTO) always seem to cause some confusion for employers, and the interaction between these rules and California’s mandatory paid sick leave law only adds to the confusion.
That’s because PTO typically incorporates vacation and sick time into one benefit. An employee can use PTO for personal reasons, vacation or sick leave.
No law requires California employers to provide vacation or PTO. However, if you choose to provide these benefits (considered earned wages), California law determines how you apply them. Specific steps also apply when administering and providing California’s protected paid sick leave benefit.
All the while, state enforcement agencies are making wage theft violations a priority. So pay close attention or pay the price.
Avoid common uh-ohs (and oh no’s) of noncompliance when you attend this informative webinar.
