AbsenceSoft, the market-leading cloud provider for Total Absence Management to help employers efficiently and cost-effectively manage the myriad of federal and state leave laws, announced today new updates to assist its clients in tracking and reporting critical activities arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our clients are going through difficult times right now and we are doing everything possible to help them stay compliant and manage their business operations during the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated John Huettel, President and CEO of AbsenceSoft.

Additionally, AbsenceSoft wanted to give its customers tools and resources to measure the impact of COVID-19 on their business and help employees safely return to work. New functionality was quickly added to both track and report on COVID-19, in addition, to help keep up with the new laws and regulations that were recently passed in the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

“We know clients are challenged not only to keep up with the changing legislation but also to put new processes in place to triage COVID-19 cases and help impacted employees and their families,” said Joe DiPaulo, EVP of Operations of AbsenceSoft. “We continue to make changes to assist employers in managing both the unpaid and paid complexities of LOA amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.”

With constant updates and legislation review, AbsenceSoft customers have been able to stay compliant during the COVID-19 pandemic. “Thanks to the use of AbsenceTracker™, 85% of our absence team is now working from home until further notice. It has allowed us to continue to serve our customers without missing a beat,” said Jeff Higgins, VP of Integrated Absence Management at TRISTAR Group.
