Montreal, Canada, November 21, 2013 – Presagia, the leading developer of Software as a Service (SaaS) leave management solutions and BLR(R), the foremost provider of U.S. compliance and training solutions, announced today that they have entered into a partnership to provide leave management software solutions to BLR clients.
U.S. employers must contend with more than 450 pieces of federal and state leave legislation that determine when and how employees can take job protected leave for events ranging from pregnancy to jury duty. Each piece of legislation has its own set of eligibility, entitlement, notice, documentation and tracking requirements, and oftentimes the requirements overlap.
Presagia provides software solutions that automate leave management and offer a high level of decision support to help employers manage these laws efficiently and compliantly. It monitors and manages 450 pieces of federal and state leave legislation including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and state family and medical leaves. The system’s rules and leave correspondence are updated continuously and provided automatically to clients at no additional cost.
BLR provides compliance and training solutions in the HR-employment, compensation, safety and environmental areas. For more than 35 years, they have excelled in simplifying labor laws and human resources management while offering best-in-class training, products and services.
