Description:

Recently, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority announced it would fire 27 employees for attendance policy abuse. An analysis of FMLA leave patterns revealed 208 Friday call-ins during July and August, compared to just 68 Friday call-ins over the rest of the entire year.

Does this case of Friday FMLA fraud sound familiar? Chances are, you’ve dealt with one or more cases of questionable FMLA leave yourself. But what can HR do about it?

Medical certifications are a useful tool for assessing whether protected leave under FMLA should be authorized in the first place, and a very good way to help crack down on suspected abuse.

Unfortunately, the certification process is far from straightforward, and the law limits your ability to question an employee’s intentions or request additional information.

Join us to learn how to master the key steps of requesting and interpreting FMLA certifications, including how to legally get the information you need from a healthcare provider and even detect potential abuses of the system.

You’ll learn:

  • How to structure the use of medical certifications
  • What you can ask for on a FMLA certification form
  • When a second or third opinion is permissible under FMLA regulations
  • What rights employees have during the FMLA certification process
  • What to do if the employee provides an insufficient FMLA certification – or none at all
  • How to handle employee use of intermittent leave under the FMLA
  • How to address when an employee is chronically out on Mondays and/or Fridays
  • Practical recommendations on preventing FMLA leave abuse in your workplace

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand version, as shown in the pricing options below.

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.
