AGC is here to help our members prepare for the City of Portland’s Mandated Sick Leave Ordinance! AGC has developed for our members 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 a construction-specific seminar hosted by AGC for its members only. The January seminar will be held on January 29, 2014 in the AGC Center Boardroom from 9:00-11:00am and will be led by Employment Law Attorney Leora Coleman-Fire with Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt.
