In the current recessive economy, companies are more urgently looking for ways to cut costs in every area. More and more organizations are seeking to reduce the direct and indirect costs associated with employee absences and leaves, while increasing the productivity of their workforces. To do this, they must have an understanding of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which requires certain employers to grant employees job-protected unpaid leave for qualified health or family reasons and recent updates cover military family leave. Employee absence management and the administration of FMLA represent significant costs for businesses and they've gained C-level visibility. As the regulations become more complex, HR executives have more difficulty remaining compliant. This Webinar will examine the Department of Labor's FMLA requirements and the solutions available to help employers keep absence costs under control.

Drawing on his 16 years of experience in enterprise-wide workforce management solutions, CyberShift's Swart will address the benefits of automating absence management. He will examine how automation delivers business intelligence that empowers organizations to effectively plan for absences, enables greater control over costs through optimized schedules and ensures adherence to absence policies, procedures and pay rules. In addition to learning about FMLA eligibility requirements, rules on intermittent leave and the recent expansion of FMLA, attendees will receive a free CyberShift white paper titled "Time Is Money: How Organizations Can Effectively Monitor and Manage Absences to Improve Productivity and Mitigate Risk."

This webinar is approved for one hour of recertification credit toward the American Payroll Association Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) designation.
