When do I need to have a paid time off policy in place?

A:

Most employers will need to have a policy in place so that employees can begin to accrue paid time off on Jan. 1, 2017. You may, however, institute a one-year waiting period before employees may utilize their paid time.

If you employ five or fewer employees, you will need to have a policy in place so that your employees can begin to accrue paid time off on Jan. 1, 2018. You may, however, institute a one-year waiting period before employees may utilize their paid time.

If you are a new business, you will have one year from the date you hire your first employee to have a policy in place so that your employees can begin to accrue paid time. One year from the date you hire your first employee, you may then institute an additional one-year waiting period before your employees can utilize paid time.
