ProPayroll’s Leave Manager is here- FMLA made easy!

Nov 5, 2013 4:11:00 PM / by John Duval

FMLA Made Easy

While managing unplanned, incidental absences, such as those caused by sickness, accident, and weather, can have an impact on daily operations, managing employee leave of absence requirements and intermittent leave can ultimately require additional administration and have a more significant financial impact on your bottom line. Without accurate, automated leave of absence management, employers are at risk of noncompliance with leave regulations such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and potentially subject to fines or classaction lawsuits. Granting leave requests to ineligible employees or extending leave benefits beyond the accrued time period can drive up labor costs. And administering leave requests, tracking leave eligibility, and reporting on granted time off can be time-consuming and errorprone, resulting in inconsistent policy enforcement.

Our leave management module gives you comprehensive leave of absence management capabilities, allowing you to automate the enforcement and tracking of federal, state, and employer-specific leave policies and requirements for a variety of qualified leave types, including illness, injury, disability, bereavement, military, jury duty, maternity/paternity, child/elderly care, and labor disputes. With electronic, automated administration of leave eligibility and requirements, compliance with federal and state laws is easier, errors from human intervention and manual processes are reduced, and new rules and regulations are automatically updated as legislation changes. You can minimize the risk of costly litigation and employee grievances with accurate, consistent leave of absence management.
