Title:

Employee FMLA Certifications: Practical Rules to Avoid Legal Mistakes

SKU:WC-1020258
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webcast
Description:

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides eligible employees with the right to take leave and keep their jobs on a reduced schedule, with intermittent absences, or for an extended period of time. Clearly this can present management challenges—if not major headaches. It’s a conflict that has bedeviled employers since FMLA went into effect more than 20 years ago.

Medical certifications are a useful tool for helping HR stay on top of employee leave and avoid leave abuse. Knowing how to systematically use medical certifications can help you determine who should be approved for leave and even realize when a fake claim has been made. And, most importantly, the smart use of medical certifications can also help you prevent costly lawsuits.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to master FMLA certification challenges and stay out of court.

You’ll gain insights on the ins and outs of how to use medical certifications to overcome difficult administrative and intermittent leave challenges and handle cases of suspected FMLA abuse.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
