Arizona Paid Sick Leave Law: Proposition 206

Effective July 1, 2017

Created to help all AZ businesses comply with the new paid sick leave law

What Should Dental and Medical Employers Know?

As a healthcare employer in the state of Arizona, you are subject to all minimum wage and paid sick leave regulations covered under Proposition 206. That said, there are no additional regulations affecting medical or dental professionals.

But there’s a lot to be done before the July 1, 2017 compliance deadline! Even if you previously had a PTO or paid sick leave policy, you will want to have a trusted legal or HR professional update your employee handbook—the “DIY” approach is just plain unsafe.

You will also need to abide by the new posting and record-keeping requirements mandated by the law. Employee posters must be updated, and employees must be notified of their right to paid sick leave. Your timekeeping, payroll, and recordkeeping systems must be robust and fully compliant—and many offices aren’t using solutions that fit the new law’s requirements.

Have Your Employee Handbook Evaluated For Free

You’ve got to update your sick leave policy before the July 1 deadline anyway, so there’s no more convenient time to check ALL your employee policies for legal compliance. Arizona labor laws aren’t all you need to worry about: hundreds of federal, state, and municipal laws apply to you and your business, but most healthcare employers aren’t aware their policies need critical updates.

CEDR HR Solutions is currently offering a free employee handbook evaluation (a $299 value) so you can learn if your handbook is up-to-date and as protective as it can be. Our attorneys will review critical policy points against current employment laws. If we find any issues, we’ll schedule a complimentary one-on-one phone meeting to personally discuss any areas that need updating. If everything looks good, we’ll also let you know!

There is no risk or obligation to this process—just knowledge that will empower you. Our mission is to reduce your liability and save you stress, time, and money down the road.
