Giving employees time off from work is sometimes mandated by state or federal law, and sometimes it is simply good management practice. The following pages review the common types of leave as well as the various laws that affect employee leave in counties.  It is important to understand what leave is required by law and what is left to the discretion of the employer. State law requires that counties have written policies in place setting out their practices with regard to employee leave. [1]
