We recognize the challenges you face and offer a tailored solution that’s designed to simplify the FMLA and leave of absence process. Our dedicated HR Services team is committed to staying ahead of the ever-changing landscape of leave management.

At Higginbotham, our team can assist with Family and Medical Leave Act administration at both federal and state levels. Our approach is designed to help guide businesses through the complexities of FMLA, focusing on compliance with laws that safeguard employees needing leave for specific reasons. We aid in managing the aspects of eligibility, duration and benefits associated with FMLA leave, striving to uphold the rights of employers and employees alike. Our team can also assist in managing state-specific FMLA requirements.
Employer-sponsored medical leave is a valuable component of an organization’s benefits package, demonstrating a commitment to employee health beyond legal requirements. At Higginbotham, we help manage medical employee leave programs by collaborating closely with employers to understand and implement their specific policies. We assist in fair and consistent administration of these leaves, supporting both employees and the organization as a whole, while maintaining the confidentiality and sensitivity such situations demand.
State-level non-FMLA leave includes leave types mandated by individual states that fall outside the purview of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. These leaves can vary widely, from voting to school activities to emergency responder work. At Higginbotham, our HR team can offer guidance in managing state leave law compliance, leave administration, policy implementation, employee eligibility and more.
Military leave administration involves navigating the unique requirements set forth by laws like the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA). Our military leave services include assisting in the appropriate administration of leave and benefits to employees serving in the military, along with the proper reinstatement of these benefits upon their return. We can also provide guidance on various aspects of military leave, such as duration, notice requirements and benefits continuation, to help ensure the respectful and compliant treatment of employees who are serving their nation.
Employer-specific leave policies are unique to each organization, reflecting its culture, values and operational needs. These might include sabbaticals, bereavement leave or parental leave beyond what is legally required. At Higginbotham, we work hand-in-hand with employers to administer these customized leave policies. Our goal is to help ensure that these policies are applied consistently and fairly, aligned with the company’s overall HR strategy and communicated effectively to employees. We work to strike a balance between accommodating individual employee needs and maintaining the operational efficiency of the organization.
With Higginbotham, you gain a partner who understands the importance of balancing compliance with compassionate leave administration.
Our approach is not just about fulfilling a legal requirement; it’s about supporting your team and maintaining the integrity of your workplace. We work alongside you every step of the way, helping facilitate a leave management process that’s as smooth and stress-free as possible.
