FMLA law has become a popular topic among employers recently, due most probably to a flurry of news articles highlighting the large judgments levied against covered employers who were determined to be non-compliant with FMLA law. Another batch of business news brings attention to the Department of Labor’s release, regarding their plans to nearly double the number of FMLA investigations and audits, over the course of the next year. Attorney’s seem to be making out well in all of this, but concern for employers is building over compliance with FMLA law.
There is no doubt that FMLA law has become very confusing recently, due to the mounting legislation provided by states, intending to increase the benefits or coverage of federal FMLA. In addition, the Supreme Court’s decision to eliminate the Defense of Marriage Act’s “one man and one woman” definition of marriage, has left that determination up to the states, on an individual basis. So more and more attention is being required of leave administrators, in order to ensure the appropriate application of state and federal FMLA law.
The confusion surrounding FMLA law was a major contributing factor thirteen years ago, when Qcera Inc. decided to create LeaveSource™ software and provide covered employers with efficient and cost-effective compliance solutions.
