FMLA absences are on the rise and some sectors—particularly manufacturing, hotels, health care, call centers and government entities—far surpass others in terms of FMLA absenteeism rates, says a new report by EAP provider ComPsych.

Example: Health care employers have 39% of their workforce with an open FMLA leave at any given time, compared with just 7% of professional service employers. From 2008 to 2012, the average length of FMLA leave for health care employees jumped to 28 days—an increase of more than 25% in those five years.
