5 guidelines on managing intermittent leave and curbing leave abuse under current FMLA regulations
One of the biggest employer complaints about the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is the productivity problems caused by employees’ use—and abuse—of FMLA intermittent leave.
The problem: Employees with chronic health problems often take FMLA leave in short increments of an hour or less.
The Department of Labor (DOL) took a big step to help minimize workplace disruptions due to unscheduled FMLA absences in its revised regulations, which took effect in 2009. The DOL says that, in most cases now, employees who take FMLA intermittent leave must follow their employers’ call-in procedures for reporting an absence, unless there are unusual circumstances.
Business Management Daily, publisher of The HR Specialist, has designed this report to help you ensure that you're properly tracking FMLA intermittent leave, and your organization’s policies and employee handbook are up to date.
