Leaves of Absence have become more complicated to track and administer than ever before. In a recent SHRM study, 40% of HR professionals reported that they approved requests that they did not believe were legitimate due to administration deadlines and validity of documentation.
According to the EEOC, the average cost of defending an FMLA lawsuit is $78,000. With the expansion of FMLA and the addition of Paid Sick Leave for employers under 500 employees, the burden of administering and complying with these programs may be overwhelming for business owners.
