BASIC’s Absence Management: Simplify & Improve Employer Administration

Managing multiple employee leaves can present a huge drain on human resources in companies of any size. Between 4% and 10% of U.S. employees are absent on any given day according to Employee Benefit News, September 2010. Many of these leaves are left undocumented, which means employers do not have complete data on the number of leaves, and the duration of the absences is inconsistent in the way leave requests are managed. The decision to outsource absence management allows employers to depend on BASIC’s experienced professionals to evaluate requests and grant or deny leaves based on federal and/or state requirements. Thus, BASIC’s consistent and standardized approach will free up time and resources for your HR Department.

BASIC’s Absence Management Service is designed to function around the absence (call off from work) and track reasons and the absence frequency. This service is also designed to administer actions in conjunction with the call inclusive of FMLA, State Leave Requirements and/or employer leave polices. BASIC’s Absence Management and FMLA systems are designed to simplify employer administration and improve employer efficiency. The employer achieves greater ability to manage employee absence data, in order to help schedule staff and identify absence patterns by department (day or by employee) with real time information and historical absence data.
