Since 1993, the federal FMLA has helped millions of employees take time off from work to manage a serious health condition — or to take care of a sick parent or child. But additional state leave laws can increase leave management complexity and further make the federal law challenging to properly administer. Unum’s comprehensive leave management services can help you sort through the confusion and stay in compliance.
For more than a decade, Unum has been helping employers comply with FMLA and other leave entitlements. Because many FMLA leaves also qualify for short term disability, we manage these leave events in an integrated fashion — streamlining the process for you and your employees and avoiding duplication of effort. Let us put our industry-leading experience to work for you.
Leave-management professionals partner with your managers and employees to verify employee eligibility and track reported absences.
Our proprietary system ensures accuracy and consistency. Leave requests from all areas of your company are managed uniformly, in accordance with state and federal laws.
Filing is easy. Just call one toll-free number. You get a single point of contact for filing disability claims and reporting FMLA absences. We also offer active recertification management when leave is intermittent or the duration is uncertain.
