Description
In a 2011 survey of HR professionals by the Employers Resource Assoc., FMLA ranked as their number one issue, with intermittent leave being a significant concern. In addition, the average verdict for FMLA cases related to wrongful termination is approximately $335,000, and some industries have an average of one-third of their staff on FMLA leave at any given time. FMLA can be a costly issue for employers, resulting in countless administrative hours, lost productivity from absent employees, additional cost related to temp workers and increased liability. Intermittent leave in particular can be an administrative nightmare, with tracking of time in as little as 15-minute increments required under the law.

In this informative session, Jim Brown, attorney and senior vice president of FMLASource, a ComPsych company, will share proven strategies for reducing intermittent FMLA leave. The presentation will cover:
•       Spotting the telltale signs of questionable intermittent leaves, including “Friday migraine syndrome” and other typical patterns.
•       Tips to establish employee accountability, including documentation and deadline adherence.
•       Innovative ways to get employees back to work sooner, including referrals to work-life and EAP benefits which can resolve personal issues that complicate FMLA leave.

As senior vice president of FMLASource, an affiliate of ComPsych, Jim Brown helps employers strategically minimize the cost and frequency of Family and Medical Leave absences as well as other types of leave. Working with employers of all sizes, from Fortune 100 to smaller corporations, Brown advises on effective FMLA administration and is a nationally known expert on FMLA law and management of related absences.
