Absence software is rapidly becoming the FMLA solution of choice for many covered employers. Employers are becoming very concerned about announcements that the Department of Labor will be intensifying their efforts with regard to FMLA enforcement, in the form of an increased number of audits, inquiries, and investigations. Large judgments against non-compliant employers and reports that the average cost of FMLA lawsuit defense is nearing $100,000 is not doing anything to reduce employer concerns. So solutions are being considered and absence software is topping the list.
Properly updated absence software will keep a company compliant with federal FMLA, but much of today’s concern centers on the layers of state legislation adding to federal requirements. And the recent decision of the Supreme Court to throw out the Defense of Marriage Act’s “one man and one woman” definition of marriage has put the definitive responsibility into the hands of individual states. Thirteen states have laws already on the books recognizing same-sex marriage, therefore they must immediately handle federal FMLA application differently and appropriately. Appropriate and automated state-based handling is a must when considering absence software.
Absence software can provide all of the necessary assistance, but in-house software brings issues of security, maintenance, and updating into consideration.
