Mastering Intermittent Leave: How To Correctly Apply FMLA Rules And Stop Abuse
|Date / Time:
When employees repeatedly take intermittent leave for their own or a family member's long-term health condition, it can be disruptive to all parties involved - from supervisors to coworkers to HR managers. You want to follow the law's requirements, but you're wary of employees gaming the system.
The cost of absenteeism when employees are on intermittent leave can often exceed wages and benefits, but that amount increases even more when you factor in training replacements, reduced productivity, and decreased employee morale.
But because employees are legally entitled to this type of leave, it's your job to figure out how to administer it correctly. Learn tips to manage these absences efficiently so that you can stay in compliance with FMLA regs and keep unscrupulous employees from taking advantage.
By participating in this interactive HR Hero webinar, you'll learn:
- Circumstances that qualify employees for intermittent leave
- The documentation needed before an employee can take intermittent leave
- When you can question an employee's use of intermittent leave
- How to calculate and track intermittent leave
- When you can require employees to take intermittent leave at a time convenient for the organization
- Alternate positions that better accommodate unpredictable absences
- When docking an employee's pay for intermittent time off is permissible
- Practical steps to consider when an employee's leave interferes with your organization's operations and productivity
- The difference between time off as FMLA intermittent leave and time off as a reasonable accommodation of a disability and why it matters
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to balance your employees' rights to take intermittent leave under FMLA with your need for workplace productivity and stability. Register now risk free for this informative event.

|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.
