Employment Wisdom On The Go

Courtesy of Rebecca


There has been lot of

discussion recently about

designation of FMLA and

what happens if an employee

declines FMLA

and asks for some other

leave first, saving the

FMLA for later.

There was a recent

article posted on a site

called FMLA Insights that

I thought was particularly

well balanced between the

camps that say not to designate

unless the employee

wants it and those that

say designate it no matter

what. Here is an excerpt

from that article:

Here, you have two options:

1.Deny FMLA leave.

If the employee has not

returned complete and

adequate medical certification

within 15 calendar

days, and he has not engaged

in any good faith efforts

to return it, you have

the right to deny FMLA

leave and subject the employee

to your attendance

policy, which often will

treat the absence as unexcused.

2. Designate the absence

as FMLA leave.

For some employers,

denying FMLA leave

above will not result in

an unexcused absence because

the employee simply

can use accrued paid

leave without any consequence.

For other employers,

they simply want to

start the FMLA clock running

so that the employee

exhausts FMLA leave as

quickly as possible and return

to work. . . .

If the employer has

sufficient information

to designate the leave as

FMLA leave immediately

after receiving notice of

the employee’s need for

leave, the employer may

provide the employee

with the designation notice

at that time. 29 C.F.R.


Simply put, you do not

need medical certification

in your hand to designate

leave. As the regulations

state, if you have enough

facts based on the employee’s

notice to establish

that the employee requires

leave that is covered by the

FMLA, you can designate

it as such. No other questions

asked or information

needed. Notably, under 29

C.F.R. 825.305(b), you

can always ask for certification

later ‘if the employer

later has reason to question

the appropriateness of

the leave or its duration.’”

The good news is that

this scenario does not

happen often because

most employees want the

job protection offered by

and corporate law. Rebecca

Once you’ve calculated

all the income

you’ve received, make

any necessary adjustments.

Subtract inflows

not likely to occur again

in 2015, such as exceptional

gifts, bequests, asset

sales, and so on. Altogether,

you’ll have an

idea of how much cash

flow you can expect in

2015, raising or lowering

the number to keep

up with current circumstances,

such as a higher

salary this year.

Tracking your outlays

Your checking account

statements also will

show how much you’ve

spent during the year:

checks you wrote, bills

you paid automatically,

personal checks that

you cashed for spending

money. Be sure to include

your debit card or

ATM withdrawals in the

money you spent during

2014, even if they

are linked to an account

other than your regular

checking account.

To complete the picture

of what you spent

during the year, request

annual statements from

your credit card companies.

Focus on the future

Once you have calculated

your cash flow from

last year and the amount

you spent, you can make

certain plans for 2015.

Creating a personal

or household cash flow

statement can start your

year off with a greater

grasp of your finances.

In addition, this exercise

is an excellent way

to begin gathering the

data you need to prepare

for your 2014 tax

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20

You impress everyone with your creativity this week,

Aries. Allow this creativity to be the inspiration behind

projects you have been putting off of late.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21

Keep your goals relatively simple for the next few days,

Taurus. You can benefit from the positive reinforcement

of completing tasks and getting things done.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21

Gemini, you have been immersed in work and are starting

to show the ill effects of keeping long hours. Now

is a great time to take a few days off or enjoy a minivacation

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22

Cancer, you have a lot to get done, but resist the urge

to micromanage every detail, as this could be a surefire

path to burnout. You need to take a few breaths.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23

Leo, avoid the temptation to get started on another new

project. You already have plenty of other things on your

plate. Finish those tasks before moving on to something


VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22

It is sometimes easy to miss the forest for the trees, Virgo.

Try taking a step back so you can look at a puzzling

project from a new perspective.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23

Libra, you may be searching for a new adventure, but

try to appreciate the here and now as well. It’s easy to

get swept up in fantasies, but don’t let them carry you

too far away.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, you suspect that someone is hiding something,

and that very well may be the case. Perhaps a welcome

surprise is coming your way. Resist the urge to dig too


SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

You can probably talk your way out of trouble, Sagittarius,

but this time it’s better to let things play out. Keep

conversations light and free from controversy.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, find balance between your personal ambitions

and things you have to accomplish at work and

at home. Finding a middle ground is the best approach.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, you need a few extra people to contribute to a

special task, but you do not know who to ask. If you think

hard enough, you will know who you can depend on.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20

Your demeanor makes it easy for others to enjoy your

company, and that will come in handy as your social

schedule fills up in the days ahead.

KVCAP Celebrates 50 Years Helping Central

Mainers Overcome Poverty

Submitted by Andrea


The year was 1965. The

average annual income was

$6,450. The average house

cost $13,600 and gas was

31 cents a gallon. On the

national front, America

was heavily involved in

Vietnam and the anti-war

movement was gaining

support. The Voting Rights

Act became law, guaranteeing

African-Americans the

right to vote. “The Sound of

Music” was released on the

big screen and The Grateful

Dead played their first

concert with Jerry Garcia in

San Francisco.

Something pivotal was

also happening in Central

Maine. Fueled by President

Johnson’s War on Poverty

and the Economic Opportunity

Act of 1964, a Board

of Directors was organized

and the Northern Kennebec

Valley Community Action

Council was born. Under

the leadership of Executive

Director Ray Richard,

this new, local Community

Action Agency began addressing

the needs of lowincome


Within the first 15 years

we expanded services to

Somerset and southern

Kennebec counties and our

name was changed to the

Kennebec Valley Community

Action Program, reflecting

our new, larger service

area. Members of the

board convened a statewide

meeting to study the needs

of low-income families.Senior

centers were created,

teen centers opened, the

first Family Planning clinic

was established, day care

programs and Head Start

were up and running, WIC

was in operation, and transportation

services were


Over the next 35 years we

saw our programming grow

and change to meet the current

needs of residents, and

funding sources came and

went, but our mission never

changed. Our primary goal

has always been, and always

will be, to help people

overcome poverty.

Fast forward to 2015. We

serve nearly 25,000 people

annually in Kennebec and

Somerset counties, and also

provide heating and weatherization

services to residents

in Lincoln and Sagadahoc

counties. We employ

more than 240 staff members

and have an annual budget

of 16.2 million dollars.

But we didn’t get here

alone! KVCAP’s success

is in part the result of the

strong local, state, and national

partnerships that were

built and nurtured over the

years. It is also because of

the energy and compassion

of KVCAP staff and leadership

and the generosity of

community members, who

have given their money,

their time, and their hearts

for five decades. But mostly,

it is because our services

are trusted, needed, and accessed

by so many throughout

Central Maine.

For 50 years we have

helped hundreds of thousands

of residents in their

struggle to overcome the


Lake Region Reader

barriers of poverty.

Whether they are accessing

transportation services,

homeowner and financial

education and support,

heating assistance, child

development programs,

teen-related services, employment

assistance, or any

other KVCAP program,

our purpose remains unchanged.

We are committed

to helping people become

and remain economically

and socially self-sufficient.

And we invite you to join

our efforts in 2015. Together

we CAN make a difference.
