On December 13, 2018, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder signed legislation (S.B. 1175) entitled the Paid Medical Leave Act, which significantly modified the state’s Earned Sick Time Act (set to be effective April 1, 2019). Under the new Paid Medical Leave Act, employers with 50 or more employees must provide paid medical leave to eligible employees for personal or family health needs, as well as purposes related to domestic violence and sexual assault. The act also specifies the conditions for accruing and using paid medical leave, posting requirements, and remedies and sanctions for violations.
The act is effective March 29, 2019.
