The Family and Medical Leave Act is probably one of the most difficult federal law’s to navigate. Understanding the various terms, calculating the leave to which an employee is entitled, determining what benefits you must provide to employees while on leave can be a legal landmine. Managers and supervisors often get frustrated by absenteeism – particularly when it makes it so difficult to plan schedules because the absences are unpredictable.

Employers must also keep in mind that your manager or supervisor is the person that your employee will likely communicate a need for leave. If the supervisor does not inform human resources, the department often will not send out the paperwork that may be required under the Act.
