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