HR Form of the Week: How to Curb FMLA Abuse

Each week, we will feature a different document from our forms library and provide information about where to find it, what it’s used for, and any necessary instructions. With this program, you’ll always be one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding the forms you need.

This week, the HR Form of the Week is a How to Curb FMLA Abuse. 

For clients with access to the Forms Library, you can locate the document as follows:

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) places a variety of restrictions on employers that limit their ability to curb FMLA abuse. Nevertheless, there are a variety of steps employers can take, consistent with the restrictions of the FMLA, for curbing abuse of FMLA leave.

This guideline will help employers identify when FMLA Abuse takes place and what actions to take. Keep in mind that not all of these steps need to be taken in every situation. Each situation must be addressed on its own facts, since some entitlements to FMLA leave are obvious and raise few risks of abuse, while others require more careful attention and controls.

We hope you find this information valuable and that it helps to make your HR experience easier and more efficient.
