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.

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.
