Free FMLA Sample Guidelines Will Help Organizations Develop Their Own FMLA Policy
Falls Church, Va. — It’s essential for organizations to have a written Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) policy for employees who need to take leave. With a well-defined and consistent policy in place, organizations can avoid abuse of the law by employees and getting caught up in legal problems.
“It’s extremely important that your organization has a carefully-worded, legally-sound policy for the FMLA,” says Business Management Daily’s Senior Web Editor Elizabeth Hall. “It needs to communicate your rules, standards and benefits.”
Business Management Daily’s FMLA Sample Policy: Example FMLA guidelines for organizations will show human resources professionals how to properly adhere to the FMLA, prevent misuse of the act by their employees and avoid lawsuits. Business Management Daily is offering this valuable resource FREE for a limited time to emphasize the importance of complying with the FMLA. This sample policy is presented as a word document that HR pros can edit for their own organizations.
FMLA Sample Policy: Example FMLA guidelines for organizations includes:
- Circumstances in which employees are allowed to take unpaid leave
- Guidelines for eligibility for FMLA leave
- Procedures for submitting leave requests
- Health benefits during FMLA leave
- Standards for job continuation after FMLA leave
These FMLA guidelines also include a customizable sample letter notifying an employee of FMLA leave.
“Once you get your clearly-written FMLA policy in place, your exposure to crippling employee lawsuits drops significantly,” says Hall.
