What Is A Leave Of Absence?

For HR purposes, a "leave of absence" is a period of time that someone will be away from their job while maintaining the status of employee.

Leaves of absence generally are taken due to the employee's own - or family's - medical issue, such as a birth or disability. Many leaves are often unpaid, and are often governed by FMLA, ADA, or other state and federal laws.

Employer Requirements For A Leave Of Absence

There are several laws that affect disability, leave, or absence management, including the ADA, FMLA, and Workers' Compensation. Employers must know their compliance responsibilities for these federal laws, as well as the similar state-specific laws.

Employers must know the specifics of each, including requirements for Reasonable Accommodations, Medical Certification, Return-To-work, pregnancy, and more.

Many employers also offer disability insurance (broadly defined as any employee benefit that provides income replacement and/or job protection to employees who are unable to work due to illness or accident), so employers need to know the ins and outs of these products, as well as how they interact with their legal requirements.

Essentially, employers must know:Integrating FMLA, ADA, COBRA, And Workers' Compensation
  • The legally-mandated federal and state requirements for laws such as FMLA and ADA
  • The definition of a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • When is a condition not a disability
  • How much disability leave employees may take under different circumstances
  • The processes and procedures for requesting various leaves
  • What to do when the employee does not mention she or he has a disability even though you see clear performance problems related to physical and/or mental limitations
  • How to approach an employee with a suspected disability without being accused of harassment or risk being sued for disability discrimination
  • What to do when you want to discipline and employee who mentions that the work problems are related to a disability
  • How to conduct an interactive meeting with the employee
  • When can you stop an accommodation
  • Whether the employer wants to offer disability insurance
  • If offered, for when and how long would insurance or income replacement benefits be available
  • When an employee who suffers a workplace-related injury or illness that results in a disability may receive workers' compensation benefits
As if this isn't enough, while the disability, leave, or absence management laws for FMLA, ADA, COBRA, and Workers' Compensation are difficult enough to administer independently, employers must determine which rule or law takes precedence over another.
