Control FMLA Intermittent Leaves with Confidence

“Sunsweet started working with Ms. De Lima to clean up our FMLA intermittent leaves. I was not the original person for the task but after much consideration, it was determined that I would take over the medical leave management. I started with a little knowledge regarding medical leaves, but I have worked closely with Beth’s Leave Management Team for approximately 4 -5 months, and now I’m able to manage 20 leaves at any given time with confidence. I have been using their leave letters and forms with little or no knowledge of the FMLA, CFRA, ADA or workers compensation regulations and I was able to master the letters within a few days. I keep them on speed dial to assist with any new case that I am unsure about, and they are quick to help me get things under control immediately. I would highly recommend them to any company needing assistance. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, and timely in all of their work.”

Empower Managers with skills to investigate and respond to complaints

“Ms. De Lima is our go-to person for help and direction when it comes to managing ADA, FEHA, Sexual Harassment and medical leave issues. She understands the nature of our organization and works with our managers to empower them with the skills to investigate and respond to complaints. With a particularly adversarial ADA/FEHA, Worker’s Compensation issue, Ms. De Lima was key in moving the discussion forward, helping accommodate the employee, while protecting the company. She investigated the retaliation complaint, making sure the employee understood the performance issues would not be ignored. In the end, Ms. De Lima made sure both sides were heard and adequately addressed.”

Avoid discrimination lawsuit with a quiet, quick, and smooth process

“Ms. De Lima exceeded all of my expectations for our debacle. She was not only able to assist us with avoiding a discrimination lawsuit; she was able to do so with great efficiency and professionalism. In less than two weeks from our initial contact, we were able to have our issue resolved satisfactorily for both parties. The process was quiet, quick, and smooth. Ms. De Lima was a delight to work with – extremely professional, bright and to the point. If we were to encounter another similar type situation, she would be my first call.”
