As set forth in our prior articles, the new Arizona law, Proposition 206, requires employers post a notice in the workplace describing employees’ rights under the Act. We recommend the policy also be set forth in employee handbooks. Employers should take action now to meet the effective date of July 1, 2017. The Industrial Commission of Arizona has published model minimum wage and paid sick leave notices in both English and Spanish, which can be found at https://www.azica.gov/posters-employers-must-display.
The lawyers at Faulkner Law Offices, PLLC can help you modify your existing PTO and/or sick leave policy or create a new one to comply with this new law.
