When a leave of absence journey begins, employees have questions abound. From FMLA regulations to specific company policies to state benefits, trying to understand the evolving intricacies and legalities of a leave is a burden employees and People Teams shouldn’t be asked to manage.
Tilt takes out the guesswork by developing leave plans specific to every employee on leave that is based on the most up-to-date leave law details thanks to our in-house legal and compliance team. The leave plans outline what benefits employees are entitled to from both FMLA (if eligible) and your organization’s policies. It’s not just the employee taking the leave that benefits from this, but their manager as well.
By creating a single source of truth for each leave, no matter the leave, and no matter the state, Tilt provides the relevant information for all pertinent stakeholders so that everyone who needs to know stays in the know.
When an employee requests a leave of absence and it is entered into Tilt, they’ll see their personalized leave plan laid out before them which goes into detail about the benefits they’re entitled to. Each employee is synced with one of our Leave Success Managers throughout the entirety of their leave journey should there be any questions about benefits or clarity needed around confusing laws. We believe that a set-it-and-forget-it approach to leave management and benefits education will never provide the comprehensive support necessary for a successful leave, which is why a Tilter’s human heartbeat is at the ready to help your people when they need it most.
We also ensure that education around benefits doesn’t begin and end with the employee taking the leave. A well-informed manager is vital to leave of absence efficacy and can make or break the employee’s LOA experience. Managers are a leading cause of employment law violations, and a common misconception is that these managers are bad apples or have malicious intent. A lifetime of stigmas around taking a work leave mixed with a lack of information about leave laws means even the most well-intentioned manager can make a misstep that leaves their employee feeling discriminated against, and your company in some potential hot water.
Tilt prioritizes manager education right within the platform so that before a leave, during a leave, and after a leave, they’re informed about what benefits their employee has rights to. Educating managers on leave benefits fosters an environment of empathy and support whose importance can’t be understated when evaluating the success of a leave.
Between leave law evolution and the expansion of benefits that employers roll out, Tilt takes the burden off of People Teams to educate employees and their managers on what benefits are applicable to the leave and how they’re administered. With Tilt, you can take the guesswork out of leave benefits so you can finally take a load off.
Tilt is leading the charge in all things leave of absence management through easy-to-use tech and human touch. Since 2017, our proprietary platform and Empathy Warriors have been helping customers make leave not suck by eliminating administrative burdens, keeping companies compliant, and providing a truly positive and supportive leave of absence experience for their people.
