Taking Paid Time Off to the Next Level | WF1
Carol Sladek, Partner and Work-Life Consulting Lead, Aon Hewitt
Wednesday, April 19 | 1:45 - 2:45 p.m.
What does a typical day feel like to the average American worker? Stressed, rushed, overcommitted, out
of time, exhausted and pulled in too many directions are how many describe their lives today. As a result,
many employers are looking for innovative ways to provide time off and flexibility that meet employee
needs while driving business results in a competitive marketplace. Add in an increasingly complex legal
environment of paid-sick-leave rules, and employers have their hands full. Carol Sladek will delve into the
changing needs and motivators of the workforce today and examine innovative time-off programs such
as PTO banks, workplace flexibility, unlimited paid time off and paid parental leave that you can use to
better attract, motivate and retain talent.

The Caregiving Quagmire: Minimizing Your Legal Risks | WF2
Cynthia Thomas Calvert, President, Workforce 21C; Senior Advisor, The Center for WorkLife Law
Thursday, April 20 | 9: 30 - 10: 30 a.m.
The latest research coming out of The Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California is quite
disturbing: Over the last 10 years, there’s been a 269% increase in the number of claims alleging
discrimination based on an employee’s status as a pregnant woman, mother, father or caregiver,
compared to the prior decade. What’s more, the center’s report suggests that the situation isn’t likely
to improve anytime soon. Cynthia Thomas Calvert, the report’s author, will detail the factors behind this
dramatic rise in family responsibilities discrimination claims — and the steps you can take as an HR
and/or benefits leader to minimize your organization’s risks.
