Fisher & Phillips LLP announced that it has released Version 2 of its popular FMLA Leave Calculator App. The law firm has also added a web browser version of the app along with the iOS and Android versions. The earlier version of the app released last June has been downloaded more than 1,600 times and it won a First Place Award from the Southeastern Chapter of the Legal Marketing Association for Social/Interactive Media.
The app allows employers to calculate certain FMLA leaves of absence. The FMLA Leave Calculator app will allow human resource professionals and other managers to calculate basic leave requests and determine how much FMLA leave an employee has available. The Beta version of the iPhone and Android app was introduced during the SHRM Annual Conference and Exposition in Chicago last year. Version 2 is being released during the SHRM Conference in Orlando.
Fisher & Phillips invited several early adopters of the first app to be Beta Testers for the second version. Their input was very valuable in helping to improve the intuitive app.
Fisher & Phillips Chairman and Managing Partner Roger Quillen said: “When we set out to develop our first app we said we wanted to create a tool that employers and HR professionals can use at work. This free tool has proven to be very popular as the 1,600-plus downloads illustrate. It was exciting to have our early adopters provide direct feedback as we developed the next version. We hope to hear from SHRM members and other professionals after using Version 2 of the FMLA app for their leave calculations.”
