    Rethinking Prodected Leave

    Are you sick of keeping track of protected time off? 

    Can you name all of the different laws that permit employees to take time off from work in Vermont?

    Have you ever felt that an employee was better at seeking time off than performing their job?

    Are you ready for a new approach?

    In addition to providing a summary of the applicable legal requirements, we will explore different ways to manage presence at work in this increasingly complex environment.  We will evaluate practical examples and come up with creative solutions.  Look forward to an informative and engaging session.
