Employers face so many challenges in understanding various leave laws. There are few day-to-day occurrences in the workplace that raise more legal, logistical, and financial questions than an employee’s request for leave. When such a request is made, the employer is faced with the loss of an employee and the accompanying effects on productivity, workflow, and morale. Compounding matters, the employer must navigate through a confusing—sometimes conflicting— maze of federal and state leave obligations in order to determine how to handle the leave request.
