Throughout 2022, employers in the United States and Canada faced many new and amended leave laws affecting their employees. While the past few years have seen many changes to compliance laws and regulations, this year focused on employees’ calls for more time off. Among the new and amended laws granted by state and provincial lawmakers, those impacting employee time off for family and medical reasons, including bereavement, proved especially noteworthy.
Changes to compliance laws and regulations show little sign of slowing down. As U.S. and Canadian employers look to 2023, the best way to protect themselves, their employees, and their brands is to ensure they are caught up on the latest in workplace compliance.
