Recently, the state of Tennessee amended *TCA, Title 8, Chapter 33, Part 1* regarding employees in military service. This may mean absolutely nothing to you. But, if you have employees in the state of Tennessee, you need to know what the amendment was and how it affects your employees’ leave eligibility. In a time of frequent legislative changes, varying court rulings, and ever-evolving state and federal leave laws, it can be confusing for a Leave Specialist or HR Manager to keep track of which laws apply their employees.
The Missing Piece: Data Integration
Recently, [we discussed](http://web.oci.com/blog/bid/142928/Ch-ch-ch-Changes-in-FMLA) how a good leave management system can help you put together the pieces of managing absence to view a clear picture of your company’s leave landscape. There are some leave systems out there that can provide you with the tools necessary to track FMLA and direct some of the day-to-day activities of managing leave. But most are missing a key piece of the leave management puzzle: data integration. As most leave managers know, managing absence in an organization isn’t limited to FMLA.
