Message From the President
By now, you should all be aware of the upcoming implementation of Michigan's new Paid Sick Leave Act. This week, I would like to provide some important numbers for our members.
50: This is the employee threshold for employers to determine if the law applies to their company.
40: Eligible employees must accrue paid medical leave of one hour for every 35 hours worked, up to 40 hours annually.
12: The number of employee exemptions included in the law.
3/29/19: The effective date of Michigan's Paid Sick Leave Act.
