    As the paid sick leave law wave continues to ripple across the country, companies are looking at ways to meet or exceed the now more than 40 different paid sick leave laws. The idea of unlimited paid time off (PTO) is still splashing through HR professionals' minds as an alternative way to beat the many paid sick leave laws and as a way to attract and retain talent. Need to go to Hawaii for five weeks? Yes, go -- it's paid time off! Need the afternoon off to watch your child in a school play? Sure, it's paid time off! Need a "mental health" day or two (or five)? Why not -- it's paid time off! No questions asked. But before implementing such a program, there are some things to consider. Is it too much of a good thing? Will it improve morale and work-life balance or will it cause fear within the organization? Is it a true total rewards element that attracts and retains top talent?

Learning Objectives: Rethink paid time off strategies; Define the pros and cons of having an unlimited PTO program; Understand how other organizations are implementing unlimited PTO programs.
