A statewide petition drive to mandate paid sick leave was launched in July, with the goal of getting the issue on the November 2016 ballot. This initiative would require employers, regardless of size, to provide paid sick leave to all of their employees. Employers with paid sick leave and personal time off (PTO) policies should not assume they are in compliance. There are a lot of dangers hidden in this proposal of which Michigan employers must be fully aware.
The Michigan Chamber offered a complimentary 30-minute informational webinar on November 6 to walk our members through the proposal and ensure you understand all of the nuances of this proposal and how it would affect your business. If you missed the webinar or were not able to participate, you may view a recording of the webinar here.
The webinar covers the impetus of the Paid Sick Leave Citizens Initiative, how the initiative could progress through November 2016, the details of the proposal and impact on Michigan businesses, the possibility of the initiative becoming law and where the Michigan Chamber stands.
