Best Practices of Absence Management
Absence management has always been a consideration for employers, but since the adoption of the 1993 Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), absence management, tracking, and awareness has increased acutely. Investigations and fines have always been part of the punitive threat for non-compliance, but a flurry of recent seven-figure lawsuit victories by employees has brought concern and additional attention to the need for an effective, compliant, and well documented absence management program. The recent Supreme Court decision redefining marriage in America already provides a direct effect on covered employers with employees who live in the thirteen states that recognize same-sex marriage and adds a new dimension to the absence management process of FMLA.
