Leave Tracking for HR Pros: In-the-Trench Strategies for Conquering Complex FMLA Challenges - on CD
Tracking employee leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act isn’t as simple as keeping an attendance record. If it were that simple, employers across the country would have mastered FMLA compliance long ago.
