There are two types of FMLA (Family/Medical Leave of Absence) in the USA. These two types are Intermittent and Scheduled.
Scheduled is used for pre-arranged time off. For example, if an agent is having surgery and is required to be off work for six weeks, they would make arrangements with an HR Generalist at their location and would be removed from the schedule for six weeks' time. These users are not required to call in every day to inform of their absence, they are expected to return to work after the scheduled FMLA ends and will be scheduled accordingly. An agent will not lose attendance point for this.
Intermittent is used when a medical condition or family need exists where a user is required to miss work on occasion. For example, an agent has a doctor's note that indicates he is suffering from a medical condition that may cause him to miss work on occasion for the next year. This is entered into Superpunch by the HR Generalist at your location and has a start and end date, the agent is required to call in or enter the absence in the Superpunch Mobile App using the “Approved Leave” reason every time this happens. An agent will not lose attendance points for this if they follow the correct process.
