Unlimited PTO – Considerations for Implementation – will walk you through everything you need to consider prior to implementing “unlimited” time off to your employees. The goal of this presentation is not to convince you it’s the “right” thing to do, because this type of time off program is not for everyone. Indeed, you may walk away with the sound belief that your current vacation policy is just right for your organization.

Instead, this program is designed to help you understand everything that you’ll need to think about prior to communicating and implementing this type of program for your workforce. You’ll understand the financial implications, compliance with other state and local leave laws, coordination with Short-Term and Long-Term Disability benefits, as well as system requirements to transition from your current program to an Unlimited PTO program. Join us to learn if this type of program is right for your organization.
