Successful PTO Programs

July 16

Gain new insights in the best practices for creating successful PTO programs from practical guidance to avoiding legal pitfalls.

Employers struggle to implement PTO policies that simultaneously address multiple concerns: attendance rates, company financials, administrative processes, employee health goals, and employee morale. This topic provides practical guidance to help you navigate your existing (and future) PTO policies while avoiding common legal pitfalls. We will consider options for time-off for vacation, illness, bereavement, and other common reasons. Learn the latest about successful PTO policies amidst changing laws. Take control of your workplace. You will come away understanding the characteristics of successful programs, strategies for designing your own, and tips for implementing the policy you choose.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to describe options for a Paid Time Off (PTO) policy that works best for your workplace.

- You will be able to discuss whether your PTO policy would benefit from revisions or a new approach.

- You will be able to identify common legal pitfalls arising from improperly designed or implemented PTO policies.

- You will be able to recognize strategies to improve your existing PTO policy.
