We help reduce with the significant corporate exposure that comes with handling these claims and provide you with experts you can lean on who understand the issues.
Each claim requires thoughtful analysis, careful tracking and must include frequent communication with all parties. Coordination with other State and Federal regulations such as workers’ compensation and ADA along with company disability benefits is essential, as is staying abreast of the Department of Labor’s ongoing attempts to expand what qualifies as an FMLA event. Adding to the complexity and confusion is that FMLA extends to immediate family members of employees, not just the employees themselves.
In managing FMLA, we begin with a top down review of internal practices, targeting areas for improvement and making recommendations. Policies must be up to date, compliant with the Act and strictly adhered to. Next, together, we develop an effective system of communication for reviewing each new application and determining whether the condition and situation constitute FMLA eligibility. Our expertise and experience along with frequent communication is the core of the program.
