Presagia Releases the FMLA Guide

Montreal, Canada – November 30, 2011 – Presagia, the leading developer of SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions for workforce health and absence management, today announced the release of its FMLA Guide. Written by Allan Compagnon, Presagia’s Leave Compliance Officer, the Guide provides employers a comprehensive overview of the FMLA in order to help them achieve better compliance. Mr. Compagnon will be hosting a webinar on FMLA compliance for on December 6th – the enrolment details are below.

Every year from coast to coast, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) ensures that working families are allotted the necessary time to balance personal obligations and work. While the FMLA was enacted to protect both employees and employers, overlapping and often conflicting state and federal leave laws and supplementary company policies means that ensuring compliance can be both challenging and costly. According to the Department of Labor (DOL), the average cost to an organization to defend an FMLA lawsuit is $78,000, regardless of the outcome.To help employers navigate the complexities of the FMLA, Allan Compagnon has produced the FMLA Guide. Mr. Compagnon is responsible for implementing the complex rules and workflows surrounding FMLA and state leave regulations in Presagia’s best-in-class leave management solutions. He also works closely with employers to analyze their ‘FMLA-like’ benefits and recommends how to properly manage these to support FMLA compliance. The FMLA Guide helps employers better understand and administer the Act by:

– Providing an in-depth overview of FMLA and its definitions, including ‘Qualifying Employer’, ‘Entitlement’, ‘Notice Requirements’, ‘Serious Health Condition’ and more
– Identifying common mistakes and misconceptions made when administering FMLA
– Providing employers with a structured approach to address FMLA compliance
