DMEC Tools & Tactics Webinar Series provides industry experts with market updates and insights into industry trends

Portland, Maine, May 23rd, 2018 – The inception of New York’s mandated paid family leave has re-energized the conversation around paid family leave (PFL). Sarah Brydon, Leave of Absence Subject Matter Expert at ClaimVantage, and Angie Brown, Business Development Manager, will be presenting a DMEC webinar entitled “Paid Family Leave: New York & Beyond” on May 24th at 12:00 pm ET.

Sarah and Angie will discuss reasons an employer may choose to support employees by offering a paid family leave program at a company level. Although there are costs involved, there are important benefits too, such as employee retention, and a happier, healthier workforce. They’ll talk about pitfalls to avoid, and strategies to make sure a new paid family leave program is as successful as possible. They’ll also discuss states that already have mandated paid family leave programs, and states that are exploring the idea for the future.

Tune in to hear more from these two industry experts on May 24th.
