Staffing issues FMLA/8 Hour work restriction

By Donald Panarello posted 07-19-2019 13:58

  
​We are having difficulties filling our daily correctional officer staffing levels. Part of the problem is short staffing; however, a compounding issue is the number of staff invoking FMLA and producing doctors notes stating they are restricted from working more than 8 hours. Have any of your agencies or states developed a remedy to fix this problem? Any ideas to address this issue will be appreciated.

Thank you,
