Learn to Actively Monitor and Manage Intermittent Leave
Suppose an employee calls up their supervisor and says they are taking a FMLA day. Where does the supervisor report this? When does HR find out? Can you tell if this is for a continuous leave, intermittent, or does it qualify at all?

Employers struggle with these questions and many others related to intermittent leave. This is because they usually focus on absence management and not leave management, a significant difference when dealing with compliance. A key problem is that absence data alone does not have enough depth to determine all of the elements of leave compliance. Employers also often lack the proper communication channels to ensure the leave team receives the information they need in time to respond accurately to leave events.

In this session, Presagia’s Compliance Officer, Allan Compagnon, will share his experience working with employers to help attendees understand how to actively monitor and manage intermittent leave. This includes reviewing the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees. He will examine the major issues that employers face, such as the “40 hour workday”, the “mystery absence”, and differentiating between FMLA and ADA events. He will explain the need for good absence data and best practices for collecting it and ensuring it is communicated to the right people within the required timeframes to make compliant decisions.

Mr. Compagnon will also provide best practice steps to compliance, looking at the key areas of leave programs that you should be evaluating and adjusting. He will discuss how to identify absence patterns that indicate employee abuse of intermittent leave, while still respecting the requirement to show flexibility with employees. Throughout, he will use examples from working with many employers to illuminate the many issues faced with intermittent leave.

The primary goal of this session is to give attendees practical knowledge that they can take back to their organizations to evaluate their programs and determine where changes can result in better management of intermittent leave.
