Leave of Absence Package
You receive a phone call from your employee stating their spouse has a sudden illness and they need to be with them, they are not sure when they will be back, but are worried about their job and don't want to be fired. Although there are many different scenarios for an employee to request a leave of absence, are you prepared for employee's requests for extended absences? Employers need to be able to answer these questions with confidence:
- Do you know what regulations you must comply with as their employer?
- Does FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) pertain to your organization?
- Does your employee handbook cover time off from work? Do you know what it says?
- What questions do you have for them regarding passwords and email access so you can continue to operate?
These are just a few immediate questions that are time sensitive. There are many more questions that will surface over the next few days, weeks and even months. It's important to be prepared and compliant.
