For employers, knowing what to do when an employee requests time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act is often like trying to follow directions on a winding road with no signposts. Even if there are no active leave requests or cases open, certain provisions may need to be followed in order to be in compliance with the regulations. When those requests do come in, a fully integrated and automated Human Capital Management system can help HR manage the cases while ensuring that the Payroll Department receives accurate information about employee leaves. Even still, you have to know where to begin...and where the road is expected to go. If you're just getting started with the FMLA, let this roadmap offer you a sense of direction.
Still looking for help? We are offering a free webinar on Thursday, February 21 that explores key regulations and employer best practices when it comes to employee leaves. You can register for Leave of Absence: Navigating the FMLA & ADA right here. When registering for the session, please ensure that you enter ‘Bennett/Porter & Associates’ in the registration field that reads “Please provide the name of the company that referred you to this webinar.”
