The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides valuable job protection for employees but its growing use presents a challenge for businesses in a world where doing more with less is standard operating procedure. Administering and tracking FMLA-supported leaves has become an overwhelming task for many employers. Companies that fail to successfully maneuver through this maze are at risk for noncompliance—a potential problem that can extend beyond the organizational level as individual managers and supervisors can also be held responsible for FMLA violations.
Why should your client’s spend valuable time interpreting the FMLA, deciding which employees do or do not qualify for job protection, tracking leaves and training staff to administer the Act? Symetra’s in-house absence management offers fully-integrated administration of all types of leave.
