Liberty Mutual has published a guide on the Family and Medical Leave Act written specifically for brokers and advisers. “Tracking Absence: A Leave Guide for Producers” is intended to help producers understand the complex federal law, enabling them to better help their client’ FMLA compliance efforts.

“This guide helps benefits producers strengthen relationships with their clients,” Kevin Krzeminski, general manager of sales for Liberty Mutual Group Benefits, noted in a statement. “We are focused on being a reliable resource for our broker and consultant partners.”

In addition to summarizing the FMLA and state family and medical leave requirements, the guide provides information for brokers and advisers about:

  • methods employers can use to track FMLA eligibility
  • ways to calculate the lost productivity costs faced by an employer when leave is not effectively managed
  • questions to help evaluate a client’s FMLA program and to identify opportunities for improvement
  • processes to help clients determine if outsourcing leave administration makes sense
  • factors shared by effective leave administration vendors

It is the first in the carrier’s “Foundation for Success” series of publications designed to help benefits brokers and advisers better serve their clients, according to the firm. More information is available from Liberty Mutual via e-mail.
