Michigan Confirms Temporary Employees Are Not Eligible for Paid Medical Leave

After a lengthy internal review, the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity has determined that the state Paid Medical Leave Act that became effective March 29 last year does not cover employees assigned to staffing firm clients, although staffing agencies may provide the benefit voluntarily. In contrast, staffing agency internal employees are not excluded from coverage and thus are eligible for benefits. The ruling is set forth in a policy update that LEO will provide to interested parties upon request. The ruling confirms the position advocated by ASA in meetings with state regulators.
