This report identifies leading practices, shared priorities and challenges, and insights on how leave programs will transform in the coming years.

Key Takeaways

  • More employers selected state and local leave laws as their greatest challenge in absence management, compared to employee experience, lack of resources and business continuity.
  • 70% of employers are in favor of a federal paid leave law that would supersede state and local laws and create a uniform process for reporting and compliance.
  • A small percent (6%) of employers require their contractors to provide paid leave to employees sub-contracting for their company.

State and local paid leave laws have required many employers to re-examine the design and administration of their leave benefits to ensure compliance. These policies can create disparities across a national company’s workforce and may impair the employee leave experience. In fact, when asked about their top challenges related to leave and absence management, 77% of large employers selected paid leave laws, making it the most common challenge among all employers participating in the survey.
