Eagan, MN, May 14, 2024 – As a leader in employment law compliance, GovDocs is excited to announce significant enhancements to its paid leave software solution. These upgrades aim to simplify the tracking, monitoring, and education of paid leave laws for multi-jurisdiction employers.

With paid leave laws increasing in numbers and complexity, having access to accurate information and an efficient solution is paramount for maintaining compliance. GovDocs Paid Leave is a cloud-based software that helps employers track and apply paid leave laws specific to each employer’s locations.

“We’re excited to see the first of many enhancements coming to our paid leave software this year,” says GovDocs Founder and CEO, Zach Stabenow, “The addition of voting, jury duty, and bereavement requirements further helps our paid leave customers make sense of the ever increasing complexity of leave laws.”

GovDocs Paid Leave now includes state-specific requirements for the following:

Voting-Leave Requirements: With election season approaching, navigating voting leave policies is crucial. GovDocs Paid Leave provides comprehensive resources to aid employers in complying with voting leave laws across all states.

  • Leave Required
  • Covered Employee
  • Covered Elections
  • Required Notice

  • Who is an Eligible Employee
  • Leave Requirements

Bereavement-Leave Requirements: At a time of loss, employees need support from their place of work.
