2019 DMEC Employer Leave Management Survey Executive Summary

Tasha PattersonSurveys, White Papers

For nine years, DMEC and Spring Consulting Group have partnered to conduct annual research on employer leave management. With information from over 873 employers, the national survey tracks employer methods for administering both regulatory and non-regulatory leaves, and offers a detailed view of employer preferences and strategies for managing and overcoming the many challenges of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and overall leave administration.

The 2019 report highlights trends and employer perspectives on regulatory leaves (e.g., FMLA, ADA), non-regulatory leaves (e.g., vacation, personal leave), and state paid leave programs. It also reviews practical application of return to work, accommodations, administrative processes, systems used to manage leave, and staffing for insourced and outsourced programs.
