Managing employees’ leave of absences and accommodations is immensely complex, especially for large employers. ReedGroup is here to help you parse how federal, state and local requirements influence administration of short-term and long-term disability; caregiving, family and maternity leaves; ADA; vaccine requirements; vaccine testing and tracking; and much more.

  • Absence Management

    ReedGroup manages the leave of absence process for organizations with 5,000 or more employees, removing the burden from your HR team and increases productivity.

  • ADA

    The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act emphasizes that the definition of disability should be construed in favor of broad coverage of individuals to the maximum extent permitted by the terms of the ADA, and generally shall not require extensive analysis.

  • Compliance

    Compliance with absence management regulations requires familiarity with laws such as the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, plus applicable state and local laws regarding employee leave, including those that cover paid sick leave.

  • COVID-19

    The COVID-19 pandemic has created unexpected, urgent challenges. Employers must weigh leave of absence practices, plus new considerations about vaccine mandates, tracking, and viral testing.

  • Disability

    Injury and illness can make workers leave the labor force, but effective help can keep them on the job.

  • DMEC

    We’re a proud member of the Disability Management Employer Coalition, where you can find an effective notification program that checks all the legal boxes without overwhelming employees or Human Resources staff members.

  • Human Resources

    Human Resources is the part of an organization that finds, screens, and trains job applicants, and administers benefits.

  • MDGuidelines & ACOEM

    Evidence-based best practices from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine are the basis for MDGuidelines.

  • Legislation

    Coordinating federal, state, and local leave-of-absence legislation is an especially daunting challenge for employers.

  • Paid Leave

    Paid sick leave covers absence due to short-term illness or injury and preventive care for a worker and a worker’s family.

  • Maternity Leave

    There is no nationally guaranteed paid parental leave in the US, so it varies company to company, and state to state.

  • Return to Work

    Return-to-Work programs help workers to return as soon as medically feasible after an injury or illness.

  • Workers' Compensation

    Workers' compensation is government-mandated payment to workers who become injured or disabled in the course of their jobs.

  • Regulatory Agencies

    State and local governments legislate state and regional employment affairs.

  • USERRA

    Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act entitles uniformed service members to post-deployment reemployment in their civilian jobs.

  • State & Municipal Leaves

    State and local governments legislate state and regional employment affairs.

  • FMLA

    Eligible workers can take unpaid, job-protected leave for family and medical reasons with continued health insurance.

Find solutions and questions about absence management, employee accommodation, ADA, vaccine testing, vaccine tracking, new legislation and much more.
