Top 10 FMLA Policy Mistakes: How To Avoid the Most Hazardous Compliance Tripwires

Description:

Fulfilling the various requirements of the federal Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can be both cumbersome and confusing for HR.

Employees on FMLA may be out for long periods of time, or short intermittent chunks of time. Especially with intermittent leaves, managing the calendar in order to keep track of leave entitlements can get confusing, not to mention chasing down the appropriate medical certifications without violating employees’ privacy rights.

It’s enough to discourage even the most experienced HR professional. But help is here.

Join us for an in-depth webinar that will outline the top 10 compliance tripwires to avoid when developing your FMLA policy and putting it into practice. You’ll learn the most common and potentially confusing FMLA mistakes employers make and how to minimize the risk of legal liability under the law.

You’ll learn:

  • How to make sure eligibility requirements are clearly spelled out so there’s no question as to who’s eligible and who isn’t
  • How errors concerning designation of the FMLA year may occur
  • How to manage the calculation of FMLA leave increments
  • How to navigate when paid family leave requirements may apply—and how those interact and intersect with FMLA
  • When an employee’s failure to follow customary call-in procedures is not a disqualifier for taking FMLA leave
  • When requests for medical certification or for clarification on previously submitted certification is permitted, under what circumstances, and to what extent
  • Particularly treacherous FMLA situations that could trigger additional protections and potential liability under the federal
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

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.
