DMEC 2017 Annual Conference


Event: DMEC 2017 Annual Conference
Dates: Monday, July 31 – Thursday, August 3
777 W. Convention Way
Anaheim, CA 92802

Session Title: Paid Parental Leave: A Marketplace Shift or Fake News?

The United States remains the only developed country without a paid leave policy, which has inspired individual companies to take the initiative to expand benefits for their employees who are becoming new parents. In the last few years, we have seen employers from many industries throughout the country come forward to provide and/or expand parental leave at their organizations. Several high profile employers boosted the amount of paid time off and many granted the same benefits to both parents. This marketplace shift to more inclusive paid parental leave benefits continues to grow. This session will examine a variety of paid parental leave policy business cases. The employer panel will present discussions and design considerations that have taken place within their companies around instituting a paid parental leave program. Come join us for a lively discussion about how these employers right-sized their policy, programs, and employee experience on this important topic.

DMEC Employer Compliance Conference

Event: 2017 DMEC FMLA/ADA Employer Compliance Conference
Dates: Monday, May 1 – Wednesday, May 3
1001 Marquette Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55403


The United States is at a crossroads in considering whether and how the nation can ensure working people have access to paid family and medical leave and access to paid sick days. The drumbeat for change — both through private sector initiatives and public policy developments — is unmistakable. There is a growing, common understanding that current policies and practices are not meeting working families’ needs, an emerging sense that national level public policies are needed to fill the void, and an evolving and powerful body of evidence that paid leave works well where laws are in place. To kick off the conference, we’ll provide a snapshot of recent developments and a framework for considering the proposals that lawmakers have put forward. We will touch on evidence that dispels myths about paid leave and shows that paid leave programs benefit America’s employers, their workers and families, and the overall economy. And we’ll address the reputational and talent attraction benefits employers can realize from adopting family-forward policies.

Stop by the Exhibit Hall and say “Hi!” to LeaveLogic!
