Benefits of Family Medical Leave Act are most appreciated by employees when delivered in a timely, personal, and compliant manner. That’s why there is so much negative press about the total outsourcing of FMLA administration. It’s also why Qcera, Inc. created a leave outsourcing hybrid called Entrust, that allows a company’s HR department to maintain daily interaction and face-to-face contact with employees, as well as handle the initial leave request intake, but avoid all of the following notifications, certification reviews and communications, through return to work. HR has complete access to all employee status, circumstance and reporting. So HR remains in touch at all times and the employee receives all available benefits of the Family Medical Leave Act.
Federal benefits of the Family Medical Leave Act are supplemented in many states, by additional layers of legislative requirements for covered employers. This additional layer has created confusion, but the Department of Labor has made it clear that fines for non-compliance are increasing, as are the frequency and number of their audits and FMLA-related investigations. So FMLA compliance is a greater business concern than ever, which is why small companies should consider the assistance of LeaveSource™ Express web-based software. And companies that have multiple leave administrators, or more than a thousand employees, should consider the assistance of LeaveSource™ Enterprise software. With LeaveSource™, your company will appreciate compliance and your employees will appreciate the benefits of the Family Medical Leave Act.
