With the explosion of FMLA, state FLA, ADAA, and paid FLA leaves, leave stacking is unavoidable. For leave managers, administering one leave type was difficult; the situation becomes exponentially more complicated when multiple leave entitlements apply. It is fraught with minefields and risk for the company, as leave eligibilities, length, and reasons may be different or even conflict. Administering multiple leaves correctly requires knowledge of their differences and potential conflicts, and strategies to correctly administer these leaves, comply with federal and state regulations, and minimize company risk.
