Wolters Kluwer has announced today the launch of a New Resource Toolkit.

FREMONT, CA: Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. announces today the launch of the new Employee Leave Toolkit, a multi-faceted solution that supports employment law attorneys, in-house counsel, corporate human resources, and other professionals who have to navigate the complex patchwork of employee leave laws. The Employee Leave Toolkit is the latest labor and employment law enhancement available on Cheetah, which is Wolters Kluwer's acclaimed legal research platform.

The employee leave laws govern if an employer should allow employees to take some time off, either paid or unpaid, under numerous different circumstances. In addition to the various state and federal statutes and regulations that are already surrounding employee leave, recent pandemic-related federal laws have only compounded the complexity involved in the proper administration of employee leave.

The Employee Leave Toolkit offers a go-to solution to help the professionals and the organizations they advise, understand, and effectively manage the employee leave issues. Designed for speed, constructed on the foundation of applicable laws and regulations in all jurisdictions, and updated regularly, this toolkit offers access to a robust collection of practical tools and guidance, which can be used by any business with 15 or more employees and all law firms advising clients on employment law matters.

Vice President and General Manager of the Legal Markets at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. Ken Crutchfield says that leave compliance is one of the most challenging areas of employment and human resources law, and the pandemic has highlighted the complexities of leave compliance and its impacts on thousands of employers across the country. They created the Employee Leave Toolkit to help practitioners navigate leave problems and need to ensure compliance and to avoid penalties by offering practical guidance and tools that are easy to use, easy to understand, and continuously updated to reflect the latest available information.
