FMLA leave, sick leave, military leave, caregiver leave, bereavement leave, paid time off, workers’ comp, vacation days—the list goes on and on!

Suffice to say, HR professionals have an intricate maze of leaves to keep straight—both paid and unpaid, legally required and voluntarily given. And it’s your job to ensure that all types of leave are fairly administered and properly tracked and recorded. This is no easy task, especially given that brand-new leave rights are popping up all the time at the state and local level.
