The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs has issued its paid medical leave poster, which implements posting requirements that take effect March 29, 2019.
As background, effective March 29, 2019, covered employers with 50 or more employees are required by law to post, in a conspicuous place accessible to eligible employees, WHD 9911 Required Poster: General Requirements – Paid Medical Leave Act. This new paid medical leave law was covered in the Jan. 8, 2019, edition of Compliance Corner.
The law takes effect in March of this year, and employers should be mindful of upcoming compliance requirements. Additional guidance will likely be forthcoming. Ultimately, employers with employees in MI will want to work with outside counsel to incorporate the new requirements into their overall leave policy.
