The survey also found fewer companies are continuing company-funded benefits during unpaid non-FMLA leaves. BLR’s current survey results show that 58% of responding companies allow benefits to continue, a significant decrease from the 73% of respondents who had such a policy in late 2007. This finding was not apparent in the continuation of seniority during unpaid non-FMLA leaves, as 56% of companies in the current survey reported this practice, down only slightly from 60% in 2007.
The survey, which included approximately 950 responses, was conducted by BLR's HR Daily Advisor in July-August 2010.
