1. Boost Your Company’s Legal Compliance

FMLA interference claims and litigation can wind up being very costly, especially to smaller companies. It’s very important to ensure compliance to reduce your legal risk.

You can also cut costs in terms of the administrative burden. Leave Genius intuitively guides you through the process of completing leave requests, which saves you time, and consequently money!

3. Ensure Consistency and Fairness

Though it’s likely unintentional, if one employee’s leave is not treated as fairly as another’s, they’re likely to be very unhappy with the leave process. This in turn could lead to potential litigation or a distaste among employees.

With a technology solution, you can ensure that all leave policies are being applied fairly and evenly across the board, as you’ll have a database that references the legal aspects for you.

4. Manage Leave from Anywhere at Anytime
