Necessary Features for Leave Management Systems
Leave management systems are something that every covered employer is looking into recently. Seven and eight-figure FMLA lawsuit judgments, a hundred thousand dollar average price tag for FMLA lawsuit defense win or lose, and Department of Labor reports of increased fines and a planned doubling of audits, inquiries, and investigations over the course of the next twelve months has employers scrambling for viable solutions. And great success is available with properly selected web-based leave management systems.
A critical element to look for in leave management systems is seamless and timely updating that keeps your leave team ahead of and handles not only federal FMLA, but also any applicable state legislative requirements, and while your at it, any company-specific policies. The Supreme Court’s overturning of DOMA has put the official definition of marriage into the hands of individual states. That means that covered employers in WashingtonD.C. and the thirteen states recognizing same-sex marriage must immediately and correctly handle these FMLA modifications, or suffer fines and potential lawsuits. So compliance with appropriate leave management systems make sense.

Qcera clients have also been a big part of the feature enhancement story. Which could be why clients remain the greatest promoters and fans of Qcera’s leave management systems.
