“Leave me alone!” – With the cacophony of regulations – Are you Surviving the Management of Employee Leave?
Numerous personal and medical situations are covered by the FMLA, state leaves and unique employer policies. There are many conditions that qualify as a leave include the birth and care of a newborn, the adoption and care of a child, an immediate family member's medical condition, a health condition that impedes the employee's ability to do their job, and serious medical situations stemming from an immediate family member's service in the military. With federal programs, employees have the ability to take up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during a 12-month period for specific personal or familial medical reasons. As part of this unpaid leave, employees are granted continued group health insurance coverage. When you then factor in all the other leaves that can apply, there is MUCH to consider when an employee asks, “what do I do next?” or “how much will I get paid during leave?”
In this webinar, we’ll discuss some of the latest changes in leave laws along with latest trends in leave management. We’ll also provide practical tips for how to manage some of the biggest problems organizations face with leave of absence. Key takeaways:
• Updates to federal, state, and local leave laws
