Is your business required to offer leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act? Do you have a process and form for employees to request leaves of absence? If not, click on the link below to download a template that your employees can use to make leave requests.
Using this document, you can move those requests through the approval process - like making copies of the form and walking them around to the decision makers - and then track the status and manage the resulting leave of absence cases...perhaps on an Excel spreadsheet that captures all the details.
Yeah. That's one way to do it.
An alternative method is using a fully integrated Human Capital Management system that automates the request and routing processes for you, as well as maintains all records electronically. Here's how that more efficient and precise process might work.
