Spring Releases FMLA White Paper for Human Resource Professionals

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - December 12, 2013) - Spring Consulting Group announced today the release of a new educational white paper for human resource professionals.

The white paper, titled "Managing an Absent Workforce: A Guide to the Family Medical Leave Act" seeks to remind human resource professionals that processes related to FMLA need to be continually reviewed as other plans evolve to make sure they are still appropriate and compliant.

The white paper pinpoints some of the tactical items where employers could tighten their reigns including counting time, use of paid time, recertification processes, fit for duty and specific areas of interests for employers.

"Our consultants talk to human resource professionals everyday and there is a definite level of confusion and concern in the marketplace surrounding the FMLA and its requirements," commented Spring Partner and author of the white paper, Teri Weber. "We wanted to create this educational piece to begin or continue the discussion surrounding compliance and management. Business leaders must understand what's expected of them and what they should be looking out for when dealing with FMLA-related employee issues."

"Managing an Absent Workforce: A Guide to the Family Medical Leave Act" is available for free download at
