According to a poll conducted by HR.BLR.com, the FMLA is the biggest HR headache for employers.  A short report on their poll is here.  More after the break.

The core results as reported by HR.BLR.com were:

“When asked “Which federal employment-related law gives you the biggest headache?,” nearly half of respondents-49 percent–said it was FMLA.  A distant second–identified by 13 percent as their biggest employment law headache-was COBRA, followed closely by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) at 12 percent. The rest of the laws were cited by respondents as follows: HIPAA, 8 percent; the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 8 percent; the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), 5 percent; and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), 5 percent.”

Oddly enough, these results track our statistics at The Laconic Law Blog.  Posts here on the FMLA and COBRA get the most hits by far, with the FLSA coming in third.
