FMLA Questions as an Employer

As an employer, it is important to know where your company stands in regards to FMLA policy’s/procedures.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you have a medical leave of absence policy?
  • If you have an employee handbook or other benefit book, does it contain your medical leave of absence policy and the FMLA General Notice?
  • Is one person or one department responsible for:
    • Administering family and medical leave?
    • Reviewing your family and medical leave of absence policy at least annually?
  • When you have a question regarding the need for a medical or family leave of absence, do you avoid referring the medical issues to a physician who is routinely used by you? 

The more questions to which you answer “yes,” the more comprehensive your medical leave policy is with respect to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
