It can be very challenging for employers to keep track of changing and varying leave regulations, especially while juggling other business responsibilities and working to achieve business objectives. Compliance with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other leave laws falls at the far end of the difficulty spectrum for employers, according to Paul D. Taylor, vice president, Group Disability Product Management for MetLife. Leave laws continually change, and while federal laws provide basic guidance for all employers, nuances often come into play in the form of state and municipal laws and regulations. What’s more, says Taylor, is that in the employee benefits space, most leave legislation is relatively new. “That means that there hasn’t been much practical application yet, so legislation is still subject to a lot of interpretation, which further complicates administration for employers.”
