An increasing number of states and localities are implementing laws that provide employees with benefits such as paid sick leave, family and medical leave, and/or disability benefits. As a result, nonprofits are increasingly likely to be faced with the challenging tasks of not only complying with these laws, but also determining how these entitlements intersect with the leave, wage replacement benefits, and health insurance provided by the organization. These tasks have become even more complex during the pandemic, because many nonprofits have changed from an in-person work model to a remote work model, thereby increasing the number of applicable jurisdictions.
Please join us for a valuable discussion as we examine several key considerations nonprofits should take into account as they approach coordinating benefits for employees with medical issues, who need to care for a sick family member, or who need time to bond with a new child. This presentation will address federal, state, and local paid and unpaid leave laws, wage replacement benefits (including short-term and long-term disability and workers’ compensation), and healthcare coverage. Our panelists will provide insight and a best practices approach for your nonprofit organization in addressing this complex topic.
