AGC’s December Sick Leave Training is Fast Approaching!

Let AGC help you with the new mandated sick leave!On January 1, 2014, the City of Portland’s Mandated Sick Leave Ordinance will go into effect. AGC is here to help our members prepare for the changes! AGC has developed a detailed, construction-specific technical assistance package containing four core sections that our members can utilize to ensure full compliance:

  1. An overview of Portland’s Mandated Sick Leave Ordinance, including specific factors to determine whether or not you are required to comply, what kind of leave an employee can request, how you can handle abuse of the system, etc.
  2. What type of leave policy is best for your company, including the pros and cons of various types of policies
  3. Ideas for how to track employees’ hours to meet the recordkeeping requirements of the ordinance
  4. Examples of forms that employers can tailor to their own business to use when employees call in or request medical verification

The contents of the technical assistance package will be covered in two construction-specific seminars hosted by AGC for its members only. The first seminar will be held on December 12 in the AGC Center Boardroom from 1:30–3:30 pm and will be led by Employment Law Attorney Leora Coleman-Fire with Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt. Both seminars will include a presentation of the technical assistance package followed by a question and answer session.
