Best Practices of FMLA Administration Software
FMLA administration software has become a hot commodity lately, due possibly to a recent flurry of six figure judgments against employers found not to be in compliance with requirements set forth in the 1993 Family & Medical Leave Act. In addition to the federal regulations, a growing number of individual states are generating related legislation that is compounding existing employer requirements. Further, it’s been reported that the average cost to an employer, to defend an FMLA lawsuit, is approaching $80,000 regardless of the ultimate outcome.
At this rate, non-compliance has proven itself not to be an option and ignorance is not a viable defense. That’s why it’s important to realize that leave management and FMLA administration software has been the exclusive focus of Qcera, Inc. since the turn of the century. Their product, LeaveSource™ web-based software was created to provide an administration vehicle capable of maneuvering and adapting to the changing and churning waters of regulatory compliance, while providing an accurate, economical, and user-friendly leave management tool. Just as important is the fact that existing clients have become the greatest promoters of LeaveSource™ FMLA administration software.
More than a hundred Qcera clients, administering more than a million employees, are currently utilizing LeaveSource™ FMLA administration software to manage, document, and comply with all FMLA, state, and company specific policies. And clients have indicated that reports generated by the FMLA administration software provide useful insight to employee trends that help them to manage and reduce the incidents of leave abuse. The June 26, 2013 Supreme Court decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act’s definition of marriage and put that determination into the hands of individual states is only the most recent change to the application of FMLA qualifications. Compliance has become a moving target and the best solution is to join forces with a company that’s successfully been keeping companies compliant for fourteen years, with the best FMLA administration software available.
