    Hundreds of thousands of Nevadans care for older parents, spouses or loved ones, helping them live independently in their own homes. These family caregivers have a huge responsibility, and now a new law will make life a little bit easier for them. The CARE ACT helps family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home. This presentation will highlight HR’s role in supporting employees who are family caregivers.






    What attendees will learn:

    ·       What rights do the CARE ACT create for caregivers?

    ·       What role does HR have in guaranteeing the rights of its employees who are caregivers?

    ·       How does the CARE ACT compare to the Family Medical Leave Act?

    ·       What community resources are available to which HR can refer employees?
