More Changes to the Michigan Minimum Wage & Paid Medical Leave Law: What Now? – Lunch

As anticipated, the Michigan legislature has revised and Governor Snyder has signed two laws modifying the minimum wage and paid sick leave laws enacted in September 2018. Although there is a lot of talk that the amendments “gutted” the original proposals, employers with more than 50 employees may still feel sick when thinking about how to implement these expensive mandates.

Please join us for a workshop to discuss these new legal requirements, your organization’s options to comply, and practical solutions for making sure that your policies are up to date. Examples of what we’ll cover include:


  • When is the law effective?
  • Who is obligated to give leave?
  • Who is eligible to receive leave and which employees are excluded?

Covered Time

  • How much paid sick time does an eligible employee accrue, and how is that calculated?
  • What are the various reasons that a covered employee may use time?


  • What are an employer’s notification and record keeping requirements?
  • What is the “rebuttable assumption” and is this good for employers?

Practical Considerations

  • How does this law work with an employer’s existing leave policies?
  • What are the various options that an employer should consider when revising existing leave policies?
