Manager, Absence Management Services
Maria Reed is the Manager of Absence Management Services at F&H Solutions Group.

Maria works with clients’ human resources department to make the transition to our team’s absence management program seamless. The Absence Management team uses a proprietary software system to manage absences under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), state leave laws, and employer-authorized policies for diverse clients and industries, including airlines, customer service call centers, oil and gas refineries, and insurance and securities firms.

Maria advises clients on integrating federal, state, disability, worker’s compensation and company-specific leave, as well as any other leave included in collective bargaining agreements, to minimize FMLA usage. She ensures company leave policies comply with federal and state laws and regulations. She trains supervisors so they understand FMLA better and works with the human resources department to develop communications materials so employees understand how F&H Solutions Group will administer the absence management program.

Maria also conducts seminars on overcoming compliance and leave challenges. This includes a seminar for employers in Arizona and the Ford Harrison Airline Symposium.

She has ten years of customer service experience. For two years, she was a human resources assistant responsible for employee onboarding and training.

Maria earned a bachelor of business administration in economics from the University of Georgia. In addition, she is a certified FMLA administrator.
