FMLA/CFRA Self Audits: Find And Fix Leave Practice Problems Before DFEH Or Federal DOL Regulators Do
|Date / Time:
||5/3/2017 / 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern
If the Department of Labor (DOL) or the Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH) take an interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)/California Family Rights Act (CFRA) practices, watch out! If they uncover systemic FMLA/CFRA problems, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.
The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA/CFRA self-audit and correcting any problems before an investigation or employee lawsuit arises.
But what should you be looking at?
How do you get started?
And, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA/CFRA audit reveals problems?
Join us for legal insights into how to conduct a thorough FMLA/CFRA self audit. Attorney Danielle Garcia will help you feel secure in your FMLA/CFRA practices and help you endure possible investigations by regulators.

|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.
