Getting Paid to VoteMultimedia, Client Alert
On the eve of Election Day, did you know that about half of U.S. states have requirements that employees receive paid leave, under certain conditions, in order to vote? Another handful of states require employees to receive unpaid leave.
Over the next 36 hours, your clients may receive questions from their employees about the need to take this leave in order to vote, a request that is particularly common in healthcare given the nature of shift lengths. In this episode of Employment Law After Hours, we analyzed which states fall into which category of requirements and provided examples of certain conditions that may apply.
If you or your clients have any questions about requirements to receive paid or unpaid leave to vote, please let me know, and I can navigate these issues with you and your client.
