Best Practices of Absence Management System
Absence management system is a term no longer representing a luxury for employers, but rather a requirement. For any public company and any private company with more than fifty employees, the 1993 Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) set forth leave tracking requirements that all but necessitate implementation of a functional, updatable, and upgradeable absence management system. And related legislative mandates, added by a myriad of states since the initial implementation, have turned absence management and FMLA compliance into a moving target. The June 26, 2013 Supreme Court ruling allowing individual states to define marriage within the state is just the most recent example and the results are confusing.
Nevertheless, recent judgments against non-compliant employers are frequently reaching the six-figure range and the average cost to an employer to defend against an FMLA-related lawsuit is almost $80,000 on average, regardless of the ultimate decision. So an effective absence management system is becoming a popular and inexpensive solution in comparison. And rising to the top of economical and efficient absence management system solutions is Qcera’s LeaveSource™ web-based software.
