Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Abuse

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides employees the opportunity to take time away from work for a number of specified family and medical reasons. Qualifying employees can take advantage of FMLA at a time when they need it most. Unfortunately, this job-protecting benefit is often abused and taken under fraudulent circumstances.

When you suspect FMLA abuse, let our Rehmann Corporate Investigative Services (CIS) professionals take the necessary steps to uncover the truth. Surveillance is the key to providing the high-quality, video evidence attorneys and employers need to take the appropriate action.

Consider this example: an employee is approved for FMLA to care for their child. During this time, the employer suspects this time is being used for unapproved purposes. A surveillance investigation is conducted and determines that the employee was working for another business while on FMLA leave.

Some signs of possible FMLA abuse include:

  • An employee’s repeated use of FMLA
  • Multiple employees on FMLA at once
  • FMLA requests following denial of vacation
  • Complaints or tips collected from employee hotlines
  • Intermittent FMLA requests that coincide with weekends or holidays

Our Rehmann CIS team has the experience and state-of-the-art tools to offer you or your business a complete picture. Make the important decision to incorporate surveillance into your FMLA abuse investigation.
