Eight out of 10 employers cite leave law administration as their most difficult human resource activity given the myriad of overlapping leave laws and potential million-dollar claim disputes. A new searchable online reference tool, providing accurate and complete information on federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), state Family Medical Leave (FML), and other leave laws was recently launched by Reed Group, MDGuidelines.
Leave of Absence Advisor simplifies the tangled web of state and federal leave laws. Users can search by keyword, browse by category or specify state and leave reason, and also obtain information on corresponding best practices by Reed Group’s return-to work and leave law experts. The result is easier leaves administration, reduced risk of costly compliance errors, and increased confidence that employees are receiving the appropriate leaves when personal difficulties arise.
“No human being can possibly understand, interpret, and apply overlapping regulations in multiple jurisdictions while in the daily process of approving and administering leaves,” says Jon Seymour, MD, Reed Group President, Guidelines. “Leave of Absence Advisor is a critically needed tool for navigating that complexity.
