FMLA for employers sounds like an oxymoron. Most covered employers would not hesitate to tell you that FMLA; is for employees, is confusing, and is expensive. FMLA for employers has become a moving target and failure to hit it precisely can result in audits, fines and lawsuits. A recent Supreme Court decision struck down the definition of marriage presented by the Defense of Marriage Act. This in turn put the definition of marriage directly into the hands of individual states, which had an immediate effect in the thirteen states that recognize same-sex marriage. It almost seems that companies now need an attorney on staff to interpret FMLA for employers.
FMLA for employers becomes even more convoluted, when you consider all of the states that have created legislation intended to supplement federal FMLA benefits or coverage. In the absence of legal counsel, it’s recommended that employers provide employees with the “greatest benefit.” But that can be hard to do, when you’ve got a business to run. Recent seven and eight figure judgments underscore the potential liability of non-compliance with FMLA, as does business news reports regarding the Department of Labor’s plans to substantially increase the number of annual FMLA-related investigations and audits. More scrutiny is what FMLA has for employers.
