Jason Bent & Janice McClendon

Professors Jason Bent and Janice McClendon recently testified as experts before Florida’s Employer-Sponsored Benefits Study Task Force in Tallahassee on Wednesday, Oct. 23.  The Task Force was created by a recently-enacted Florida statute that preempts local regulation of employee benefits (such as requiring that employers provide paid sick leave) in the private sector.  The Task Force included Florida legislators, individuals in leadership positions at large and small Florida businesses, and representatives of labor unions.
