How Tilt Keeps You Compliant and Efficient as Your Workforce Grows

Are leave of absence compliance nightmares giving you the heebie-jeebies? Is your company growing faster than the weeds you just pulled from your yard last week? Do your spreadsheets have more tabs than a vending machine from 1988? Well, we sure have some great news for you. Tilt can help scaling companies manage their leaves of absence effectively and efficiently all while keeping you compliant no matter where your sprawling workforce plants its roots.

“That all sounds great, but how does Tilt do it?”

We’ll get to the tech in a bit, but it all starts with our people. Everything you see in the Tilt platform has a human heartbeat behind it. Our in-house Legal & Compliance team, leave payroll specialists, ADA specialists, and state leave specialists live, breathe, eat and sleep leave, meaning you can rest assured that you and your people have expert guidance that’s always up to date. Hear that? It’s the sound of your blood pressure reducing (legal note: if you actually hear your blood pressure reducing consult a doctor).

“My company is growing so fast, how can Tilt help me keep up with rising leave requests?”

Tilt automates the manual processes you hate. Every time one of your employees requests a leave Tilt develops a personalized leave plan that’s specific to their leave and the state they’re in. With leave requests on the rise on top of your growth in size all of this (and much more)  just got a lot harder for you to do manually:

  • Keeping track of who is on leave at any given moment
  • Coordinating with payroll
  • Ensuring employees stay on top of their state leave benefits claims filing (that’s big money many companies lose out on)
  • Providing the most up-to-date leave law information for their specific leave
  • Keeping managers in the loop and your company out of legal messes
  • Centralized and secure file storage

Anything you’d normally be tracking in a spreadsheet or digging through email threads to keep track of Tilt handles for you in an easy-to-access and simple-to-use platform.

"Is it true that having employees file their own leave claims is the most compliant, efficient, and scalable solution?"

Fact check: TRUE. At Tilt we walk each employee step-by-step through filing any paperwork so that it gets completed accurately and on time all while mitigating compliance risk. The best form filing solution keeps the power in the hands of your people because filing forms on behalf of your employees, or hiring a 3rd party to do so, opens your organization up to several risks:

Issue 1: Security of private data. Since states don’t integrate with third-party leave solutions a human is responsible for submitting claim forms either by paper or using state systems, a human is responsible for submitting paperwork. Personal data that lives in random email threads or is given to a complete stranger is asking for legal trouble. Some 3rd parties will even suggest they sign on behalf of your employees. Yikes…

With Tilt, your private data stays private with in-platform file storage as seen below (learn more about how seriously we take security here):

Issue 2: Scaling woes. If you or a 3rd party are manually submitting claims today, you’ll quickly face the reality that relying on an individual to manage all of your organization’s form filing creates choke points. This can lead to delays in form filing or rushed submittals that could be prone to errors. The financial implications of this for your company and the employee are quite serious as administrative delays can lead to payment delays.

Scaling with Tilt is easy since we make form filing a cinch for your employees and stress-free for you. By empowering your employee taking leave to submit forms easily, scaling is never an issue. Here’s a snapshot of what they’ll see (an example of a California resident applying for the state’s Paid Family Leave program):

Issue 3: Being left in the dark. Did something get filed incorrectly? Was a deadline missed? Was there a typo somewhere? Who is the point of contact at the state to remedy this? If your employees aren’t the ones filing forms there’s a huge risk of being left in the lurch when things go sideways, and by the time you might find out about it it’ll be far too late.

With Tilt you won’t be left in the dark. Since your employees are always in control of their documents they stay aware of their form status at all times. If you or your employees have questions about any step a dedicated Leave Success Manager will be there to help them with any questions that might arise. We’ll even send out reminders of important deadlines so you don’t have to:

“What about managers? Aren’t they a major compliance risk?”

Are they ever! Tilt’s holistic solution to leave of absence management means all stakeholders are kept in the loop. The more leaves you see as you scale means the more managers that need education on how to be a good manager while their employee is on leave.

An employee’s manager will have their own dashboard within Tilt so they can be informed of the type of leave their employee is taking, a calendar view so they know when they’ll be back, and tips for when and how to communicate so they don’t say the wrong thing and cause a lawsuit.
