DMECResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Absence management professionals are struggling to keep up in an era of unprecedented change. As state leave laws continue to evolve, it can be difficult to keep pace. Coordinating the bevy of new paid family and medical leave programs with the other leaves and benefits already in existence is a daunting challenge.

This webinar broke down how different benefits programs work together, and guided attendees in understanding the value of combining short-term disability with paid family medical leave (PFML). Presenters identified trends in company leave programs, and the benefits such offerings bring to a well-rounded leave program.
