The HR Daily Advisor® announced today the release of a free report for HR managers, 12 Ways to Curb FMLA Abuse, which will help employers detect and deal with employees who abuse FMLA.
The special report examines the steps HR can take to limit potential FMLA abuse and minimize disruption in the workplace. Some of these steps include:
• Calculating FMLA leave using a “rolling” 12 month period.
• Requiring employees to use all paid leave prior to taking unpaid FMLA.
• Requiring medical certifications to be returned within 15 days.
“Employees are becoming more and more sophisticated in ways to abuse the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), particularly using intermittent leave when vacation and sick leave are not available,” explained HR Daily Advisor Editor Stephen Bruce, PHR. “Managers may be somewhat apprehensive when questioning an employee's requested FMLA leave for fear of violating the FMLA. But there are many ways to legally limit potential abuse. This report covers the 12 vital tips every HR professional needs to know.”
