What you donít know about state leaves could hurt you. From short-term family leave that only Vermont offers (and only for employees who work an average of 30 hours a week and have been with their employer for at least a year) to leave that 25 states offer for victims of crime and violence, the land of unusual leaves is full of potential pitfalls and hazards for HR.
When you donít understand all of the types of leave your employees might be eligible for, you run the risk of:
- Failing to comply with leave laws and regulations
- Reducing productivity because of unmanaged absences
- Creating disengaged employees
You donít need to be an expert on the varied types of nonstandard leaves in your state, however. Instead, you can take advantage of a cloud-based leave management system from experts whose knowledge, support, and software solutions are aimed solely at helping you better manage leave in your organization.
