Employee Voting Leave Laws

Election season is in full swing! Employers and employees alike are wondering whether there are any laws requiring leave for employees to go vote. Well, the answer is . . . wait for it . . . it depends (spoiler alert: this is the answer to every legal question). Here, it depends primarily on what state you're in.

Great news though! I stayed up all night, working tirelessly to compile a list of the voting leave laws in all 50 states. And, by that I mean I copied and pasted this link to Fisher & Phillips' Voting Leave Law 50-State Survey. Enjoy!
