In the past five years, there has been a surge of new legislation regarding paid and unpaid leave, and the concept of the workplace and employee benefits expectations have rapidly evolved. This has left employers, third-party administrators (TPAs), and insurance carriers scrambling to keep up with this transforming industry.

In this session, integrated disability and absence management (IDAM) experts discussed the top five factors that are driving change in absence management, accommodations, and disability. We explored what the future of employee benefits may look like, and what employers, TPAs, and insurance carriers need to do to prepare and remain competitive.
