Today is no regular Tuesday – it is Election Day 2018!
At this time, there is no federal law that requires employers to provide their employees with time off to head to the polls. Many U.S. states have voter-leave laws, allowing employees a state-specified window of time to vote.
The bad news? Maine and New Hampshire do not guarantee paid (or unpaid) time off to vote.
The good news? Cornerstone allows its Maine and New Hampshire employees to arrive two hours late – or leave two hours early – to vote.
Office Manager Brittany opted to leave early today due to the typical morning hustle-and-bustle of traffic in her area, while Susan opted to head to the polls shortly after they opened this morning. Other employees chose to vote absentee.
Whether you came in late, took a longer lunch break or plan head to the polls after work or school – the important thing is that you get out there and vote.
