Leave of absence management is becoming increasingly important to the upper management of covered employers concerned with 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act compliance. Recent reports released by the Department of Labor indicate intentions of increasing inquiries, audits, and investigations with regard to FMLA compliance. This new investigative interest combined with reports that the average cost to defend against a FMLA lawsuit is nearing the $100,000 level has a great number of employers concerned. These concerns have leave administrators scrambling to research and recommend qualified compliance solutions capable of assisting with leave of absence management.
The biggest problems with leave of absence management according to employers is the seemingly endless changes required by a growing list of state-sponsored legislation aimed at supplementing the benefits and/or coverage qualifications of federal FMLA. The recent Supreme Court decision finding the Defense of Marriage Act’s definition of marriage to be unconstitutional has immediately put additional responsibilities on the shoulders of leave administrators in at least thirteen states that have decided to recognize same-sex marriage.
