Podcast Episode 57: Updates and Considerations on State Family and Medical Leave Laws

In this episode, Chase Cannon and Carol Wood, in her podcast debut, discuss updates and considerations regarding state family and medical leave laws. The two discuss leave protections that have been enacted in new states in the past few years, as well as states that previously had such laws and protections in place. Chase outlines, at a high level, some of the differences in duration of leave, benefits, and family members for whom an employee can take leave (including domestic partners, who employers often forget about). Chase and Carol wrap up the discussion by outlining several key points employers should consider when developing their employee leave policies, with a focus on the benefits considerations.


Every other week, NFP's legal experts make the subject of compliance personal for a wide audience. By breaking down the daunting details of emerging policies and bridging the gap between legislation and what it means for the listener, Chase Cannon and Suzanne Spradley make compliance issues relatable and relevant.
