Managing compliance issues and paperwork due to employee absences is a growing concern for businesses. Absence Management services can help.
Most employers with at least 50 employees must comply with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) federal laws, as well as any applicable state laws. Many times, companies don’t have the expertise to manage these issues on their own and can find it challenging to properly adhere to hundreds of often complex state and federal regulations.
Unexplained, unscheduled, and excessive absences due to the illness or injury of employees and their family members can take a significant toll on productivity, profitability, and employee morale. And in light of the evolving regulatory environment, mismanagement of employee leave may lead to costly legal issues.
Absence management services help your business actively track and administer absences. When combined with services provided through disability income insurance, an integrated approach can help reduce the cost, risk, and complexity of managing employee leaves and get your employees back to work safely and quickly.
