Intelligent employee management systems required to mitigate parental leave legislation changes
Intelligent employee management systems will prove to be extremely helpful in terms of helping companies mitigate the possible problems posed by changes in parental leave legislation that will come into force in December 2014.
The majority of organizations are likely to be unprepared for the forthcoming changes, a recent news report on this topic was able to reveal. And that’s partly because the admin work required to comply with the new requests will be quite a bit higher than before, Simon Kerr-Davis, a senior employment lawyer at Linklaters, commented.
The first step for employers is to think about their policies, Kerr-Davis advises. They need to not only make sure their shared parental leave policy covers statutory requirements, but also consider whether or not to enhance shared leave.
Managing changes brought about by this new set of rules will not come easy for a significant number of HR departments, but going for an intelligent employee management system that enables users to modify existing rules related to leave and pay in an easy and forward-looking manner could help, and this is specifically where Tensor plc could put its extensive experience in this field to very good use.
Our flagship WinTA.NET integrated workforce management solution incorporates a dedicated Absence Planning and Entitlement Management feature.
Our comprehensive, yet user-friendly software comes pre-loaded with graphical calendar charts that provide a colourful way of viewing an individual’s or a department’s absence records.
WinTA.NET supplies the relevant managers with information on employee’s absences through warning email notifications or via hardcopy reports. After that, the intelligent employee management system would rapidly identify missing employees that are expected to be at work and then informs you via automatic email reporting reports distributed by email.
