Do you have an HR question keeping you up at night?
The following question was submitted to our HR Professionals in the past month …
We have three employees who have been out of work due to serious health conditions. We have not provided any of these employees with FMLA paperwork, but all of these employees have worked for the company for over a year.
Are we required to continue the employees’ healthcare benefits during their time off?
We have an employee who requested accommodations for him to return to work or to extend his leave of absence. Right now, he has exhausted his FMLA and has been on leave for about 8 months. If it is difficult for the business to accommodate this request, could we simply extend his leave till further restrictions (like the requirement of a chair while working.) are removed?Are there any liability risks to the business that we should be aware of if we simply extend this leave?
