Title:

Self-Audits Of California Protected Leave Policies And Practices: How To Spot And Fix FMLA/CFRA Missteps

SKU:WC-1020307
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webcast
Description:

If the Department of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH) takes an interest in investigating your organization’s family leave practices, watch out! The DFEH is laser-focused on uncovering FMLA/CFRA problems, and even inadvertent violations can lead to high-priced penalties. Your best defense lies in conducting a self-audit before the agency comes knocking.

It’s bad enough that FMLA has a labyrinth of tricky regulations. But the compliance headache is even worse here in California because CFRA tends to place even more onerous requirements on you. Given the amendments to CFRA that took effect last year, you must ensure that your organization’s policies and documentation are up to snuff.

Join us to learn how to conduct a thorough FMLA/CFRA self-audit. Our presenter, a skilled California-based employment attorney, will get you up to speed and help ensure that your policies and practices concerning protected family and medical leave in California are legally compliant and can withstand both state and federal governmental scrutiny.

Learning Objectives

  • How to review your current CFRA/FMLA practices and fix problems now—before they erupt into something devastating
  • How to incorporate CFRA amendments that went into effect last summer into policies
  • Top-to-bottom policy self-audit planning
  • Documents to have on file to ensure compliance with FMLA and CFRA recordkeeping requirements—and the right path of action if you uncover mistakes
  • Steps involved in reviewing your existing employment policies, files, and procedures
  • Red flags that you may be in legal trouble
  • Who should conduct the HR audit—and when it makes sense to bring in outside help
  • How to fix any problems you discover during the course of your CFRA/FMLA audit (without making matters worse)
  • And much more
Taking a proactive approach to examining your FMLA and CFRA practices and correcting deficient areas can go a long way toward avoiding costly penalties and fines, as well as class-action lawsuits, and this event is designed to give you tips and strategies for ensuring a successful self-audit of your practices. In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to insulate your organization from some of the most common, legally risky issues California employers face when managing their obligations under CFRA and FMLA.

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.
