FMLA Violations & Verification
Giving Credit Only Where Credit Is Due
New programs and legislation almost always lead to new ways that unscrupulous individuals try to cheat the system. Some employees have now begun to take unfair advantage of the Family and Medical Leave Act. This abuse often takes the form of a subject being granted time under the FMLA, only to pursue recreational interests or other income producing activities.
Employers can send a strong message to their employees by hiring Elite Investigations corporate private investigators to conduct surveillance on a suspect violator. After you obtain documentation, you can appropriately reprimand the FMLA violator. Once word spreads that taking advantage of an FMLA status will not be tolerated, abuse will generally decrease.
