  • Paid Sick Leave Policy

    Paid sick leave is generally not required under federal or state law (with the exception of Connecticut). However several municipalities require paid sick or unpaid sick leave (depending on the size of the employer) and legislation is pending in a number of jurisdictions. This policy is designed for employers who are mandated by law to provide paid sick leave and who do not already have a paid time off policy that allows leave for the same qualifying reasons and under the same conditions (e.g., amount of leave, permit carry over leave, allow temporary employees to take leave, etc.) as the applicable law.

  • Sick Leave Policy

    The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), and various state and municipal laws address mandatory leave for qualified individuals to care for qualifying medical conditions. This policy does not address compliance with such laws. Likewise, this policy is not designed to cover sick leave for employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement (CBA). This policy focuses instead on voluntary sick leave for individuals not otherwise eligible for federal, state or municipal leave laws. Although voluntary sick leave is not required by federal or state law, such policies are important for employee morale and for handling occasional absences for sickness. Therefore, employers should adopt written policies regarding voluntary sick leave.

  • Independent Contractor Agreement

    An employer can customize this agreement to detail the project, deadlines, payment arrangements and termination provisions of an independent contractor's work.

  • Independent Contractor Policy

    An employer that uses independent contractors should adopt written policies regarding the hiring and payment of independent contractors to limit the risk of misclassification.

  • Required Documentation for Independent Contractors - Checklist

    Hiring independent contractors can save an employer from having to provide costly benefits and provide staffing flexibility to address temporary projects or demands. However, misclassification of workers may result in significant liability to the employer if a federal or state agency audit or a lawsuit challenging workers' status occurs.

  • Service Animals Policy

    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may entitle an employee with an ADA-protected disability to a reasonable accommodation that enables the employee to perform the essential functions of his or her job. While Title I of the ADA does not specifically address service animals in the workplace, a service animal may be a reasonable accommodation to an employee with a disability under the ADA.
