Engagement Memo-FMLA Leave Audit
We are initiating a review of Amtrak’s (the company) process for approving and managing leave taken under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Our objective will be to assess the extent to which the company is effectively managing FMLA leave. We may expand our scope or modify our objective during the review. During the review, we plan to interview company officials responsible for approving and monitoring FMLA leave, analyze relevant documents and data, and assess compliance with the law, regulations, and company policy and procedures. We will work to minimize disruptions to the company by coordinating meetings with staff in advance.
We will perform our work in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. Our interactions with the company will be consistent with P/I 2.1.4, which sets forth the relationship between our office and the company. In particular, section 7.0 of the policy discusses coordination between company officials and our Office of Audits.
