Managing leave for sick or injured workers under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is daunting for most employers. Employers must balance their efforts to prevent employee abuse of leave against the potential for lawsuits or government action for alleged wrongful denial of leave requests. Administering employee leave is further complicated by the fact that certain medical or disability-related issues can be subject to different federal or state laws at the same time. This book gives you practical tips and insights to prepare you to jump through the hoops that are required to simultaneously ensure consistent compliance with the requirements of the leave laws.
