Absence & Leave Management

A team focused on Reducing Cost, Mitigating Risk and Improving Productivity.

Family and Medical Leave Administration (FMLA)

For enterprise size clients to small businesses, our MedLeave team is focused on minimizing the impact of unplanned absences. For companies with 50 or more employees, FMLA guarantees eligible employees the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid job-protected leave in a 12-month period for certain medical and family-related reasons. Under certain provisions, Military Leave may also be granted for up to 26 weeks. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a costly regulation for employers considering the Increased Labor Expenses, Lost Worker Productivity and Continued Health Care Benefits. With significant regulation detail and legal requirements, FMLA administration is extremely time consuming and complicated.

Our MedLeave unit, utilizes a state of the art technology platform. Our MedLeave specialists decipher the complexity of FMLA law and use proven procedures & protocols for effective absence management.
