Resource Update: 50-State Survey Provides Overview of State Voting Leave Laws

Date   Oct 1, 2016

In light of the upcoming Presidential election, employers may be wondering what their rights and obligations are regarding providing employees with time off to vote. Although federal law does not require private (nongovernmental) employers permit employees to take time off from work to vote, most state laws provide some form of voting leave.  Because voting leave laws vary by state, it is important for employers to review their state's voting leave laws and adjust their policies accordingly.

FordHarrison has prepared a 50-State Survey providing an overview of state laws addressing leave for voting. For a copy of this survey, please contact
