Sparrow’s CEO & Cofounder, Deborah Hanus, took the stage at SHRM23 with SHRM’s Executive Network, and dove into the data in The Wall Street Journal’s recent discussion of why employee leave rates are at all-time highs.

Employee leave claims are at all-time highs and rising nationwide as reported by The Wall Street Journal’s April headline. Why? What can we do to proactively prepare for this ever-changing compliance landscape? In this presentation, we discuss questions like:

  • Are states providing more paid family and medical leave?
  • Is the number of parental leaves increasing?
  • Are some people taking more leave?
