Return to Work Site: Paid Leave and Absence Management Considerations

Employers are experiencing two central return to work (RTW) situations due to the coronavirus pandemic. 1) Reopening due to a directly or indirectly forced closure; and 2) Employee re-entry due to furlough, layoff, and existing leave events. View the recording of our Paid Leave and Absence Management Considerations webinar to understand the following:

Absence management concerns:

  • Tracking the type and amount of leave entitlement
  • Assuring leave types and their related pay sources are properly integrated
  • Alignment with outside vendors for pay and leave reporting (there might be limitations imposed by vendors)
  • Leave reporting limits and leave expansion required under the ADA/ADAA in relation to the COVID-19 virus. 

Pay issues:

  • Worker’s compensation
  • Unemployment insurance
  • State or municipal leave pay (emergency sick, statutory disability, PFL)
  • Accrued time under employer existing obligations – PTO, paid and unpaid leave programs, STD, FFCRA
