Arizona Paid Sick Time Webinar

Online • June 6, 2017

This is a big deal. In this 45 minute webinar, attorneys Juliet Peters and Catherine Pearson will discuss new Paid Sick Time requirements and potential pitfalls and then open the conversation for Q&A.

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM MST


Have you trained your managers to ask the right questions and avoid retaliation concerns?

In November 2016, Arizona voters approved Proposition 206 which requires all private Arizona employers to provide employees Paid Sick Time (PST) as of July 1, 2017. The new PST law places Arizona in line with approximately 60 other state and local laws providing for such a benefit.

This is much more than posting a notice and accruing time. As drafted, the law remains quirky in several key respects and has multiple risks that employers should be aware of.

Have you trained your managers to ask the right questions and avoid retaliation concerns?

New Paid Sick Time laws will impact how businesses operate in many ways:

  • There is no small business carve-out, so almost everyone is impacted.
  • Employees can use PST in small increments of time, creating the potential risk of holding perpetually tardy employees accountable.
  • Employers/ managers cannot require employees to find replacements for their shifts when they use PST.
  • Employers/ managers cannot retaliate against employees for using PST, which can cause problems if an employee is terminated for non-performance after having used PST.

Because this information is important for business owners to understand, we have kept the cost of the Webinar minimal ($45) and the time commitment short (45 minutes).

We plan to spend 30 minutes discussing new PST requirements and potential pitfalls and then open the conversation for 15 minutes of Q&A.

This law will cause huge changes for Arizona employers:

  • It doesn’t matter how small your business is or if your workers are hourly or salary, you must comply.
  • Even if your payroll company has the time calculations figured out, your existing policies and training will be impacted.

We also understand that you may need additional work such as revisions to your current PTO Policy, new PST Policy or Handbook review so we will be offering an exclusive set of flat fees and discounts for this type of work to all webinar attendees.
