On July 1, 2015, the Massachusetts Earned Sick Time Law takes effect. As many of you are aware, the Attorney General's Office has been busy hosting public hearings concerning their proposed regulations related to the Earned Sick Time Law. Mirick O'Connell testified at one of the public hearings and has been in close contact with the Attorney General's Office in order to not only convey client concerns associated with implementation of the new law, but also to better understand the legal landscape related to implementation of the law and the anticipated final regulations.
Now that the public comment period has closed, the Attorney General will be issuing its final regulations, which are expected to be posted on the Attorney General's website on June 19, 2015 and officially released by the Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth on July 3, 2015. Once the final regulations are issued, employers will need to ensure that their current policies are updated or that they implement new policies that comply with the new law and regulations.
Please join Jonathan Sigel and Corey Higgins for an in-depth discussion of the final regulations and how best to ensure your company is in compliance with the new law.
