Montreal, Canada, March 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Jackson Lewis LLP, a leading U.S. workplace law firm and Presagia Corporation, a leading provider of health and productivity management solutions, today announced the signing of an agreement that will see Jackson Lewis assist Presagia with the development of its workforce absence and disability software solutions.
According to David Glickman, Presagia’s CEO, “Integrated absence and disability management is widely regarded as an effective strategy to reduce lost-time costs for U.S. employers, currently estimated to be 15% of payroll and growing. Through comprehensive, standardized management and documentation of all leave cases and appropriate escalation of potential high-cost cases, employers can target the primary absence drivers and minimize related health, productivity and legal compliance costs.”
"We're very excited to be working with Presagia on this initiative," explains Frank Alvarez, national coordinator for Jackson Lewis' Disability, Leave and Health Management practice group. "Leave management and benefit administration have grown increasingly complex. Employers seem to be starving for tools to help them manage attendance and productivity more effectively. To make good employment decisions that reduce the risk of employment litigation, employers must identify and respect employee eligibility for job-protected leaves; they also must efficiently capture and communicate information about employee medical conditions and absences. Presagia’s software will help fulfill those employer needs and we are pleased to be a part of that effort."
While Presagia’s technology is not a legal service, and no attorney-client relationship is formed by its purchase or use, Jackson Lewis will help Presagia develop the workflow, rules, documentation and decision support required for compliance and litigation support.
In addition to enhancing workplace compliance efforts and providing accurate and complete documentation in the case of litigation, the software also provides medical case management, return-to-work, ergonomics and disability management modules, empowering employers to effectively analyze and manage all health, productivity and absence issues within a single web-based platform.
With its leading edge technology backed by the knowledge and experience of Jackson Lewis, Presagia is uniquely positioned to assist employers in developing and maintaining more effective disability and leave management programs, and in reducing the costs associated with health, absence and productivity issues.
