United Benefit Advisors and Guardian to Host “The Leave Management Puzzle: Challenges & Solutions for Midsize Employers” Webinar
Date:6/15/2017

Midsize employers are faced with increasing challenges in administrating employee leave. They have responded by increasing their use of external partners who have the expertise and technology to ensure their leave management practices are in compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and state/local leave laws. Whether a company is just getting started, looking for tips on advancing their company’s leave management program, or trying to understand the current environment, this webinar is designed to help. Leveraging insights from Guardian’s 2017 Absence Management Study and more than 70 years of collective experience among the presenters, this webinar will address current trends, challenges, and potential solutions for midsize employers. The session will offer practical advice, actionable insights, and best practices, especially for firms with 50 to 500 employees.

To help HR professionals and business owners better understand leave management, United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in conjunction with Guardian, will host a webinar titled, “The Leave Management Puzzle: Challenges & Solutions for Midsize Employers” on Thursday, June 22, at 2:00 p.m. EDT. To receive complimentary access to the webinar, enter code GNUBA62217 when registering. This webinar has been submitted for 1.25 re-certification credit hours from the Human Resource Certification Institute.

“Mid-size employers are realizing that inconsistent leave policies and procedures, or simply approving all leave requests, can potentially hurt their company in a variety of ways,” says Wes Thornhill, Guardian Group Sales Consultant. “Not managing leave properly exposes employers to potential litigation from non-compliance with federal and state laws, reduces productivity from inappropriate use of leave, and possibly lowers employee morale because leaves policies may be deemed unfair or biased,” adds Ann Johnson, Guardian Account Manager. “These challenges apply to all employers – not just very large companies, but particularly midsize firms, many of whom may not have the internal resources to effectively manage leave across multiple locations and in multiple states,” according to Wes.
