FML Percentage Usage
Our management has long contended that the percentage of FML usage at our company is very high. From time to time I have done a very informal poll by calling several companies in our area to see what their average percentage is running. This would include employees they currently have out on leave or employees with certification on file for intermittent use for the current 12-month period. It does not get into hours used, only headcount of users. I have never been able to find any survey information on a local or national basis that stated what the average ratio of employee population vs FML leave information is (as indicated above). Our current usage is running 9.1% on an employee population of 1350. In the past this number has been between 12-15% but I have no idea if that is high or not on a national level. Does anyone know where I can find this information so I can tell management if we are average or above average on our FML usage? If there is no survey information available on this, could we get a survey done here?
