Managing Employees on Leaves of Absence

Main content start

When your employee needs to take time off to care for themselves or a loved one, you don't need to be an expert on state and federal laws or disability insurance. 

Your role is to understand how long they'll be gone and effectively plan and manage your team's workload and expectations during the leave. Stanford works with AbsenceOne on claims management, and they should be the first point of contact -- for you and your employees -- for questions about disability and leaves. You can see an overview of your team's current leaves in the My Leaves portal.
