The new Michigan Paid Medical Leave Act soon becomes effective—on March 29, 2019. By then, employers employing 50 or more employees must have policies in place allowing employees to use up to 40 hours of paid time for various specified reasons. See our prior eAlert on the topic for details.

In addition to making sure policies are compliant, by March 29th covered employers must also post a poster summarizing the Act’s provisions in “conspicuous places,” e.g., wherever they post other employment-related posters or legal notifications.
