Managing Family And Medical Leave: Helpful Tips And Tools For HR Professionals
|Date / Time:
Companies hire employees. Employees need to take leave. In instances where the Family and Medical Leave Act applies, such leave can require a lengthy period of time away from work or alternatively, the use of intermittent leave.
But what happens when employees abuse their leave rights?
There are a number of things employers can do to prevent FMLA abuse, such as developing sound policies and using medical certifications. Such tools provide clarity for FMLA leave eligibility and can not only curtail abuse, but also serve as a source of documentation to help protect your organization against potential legal action down the road.
It's crucial for you to have a solid understanding of the ins and outs of FMLA regulations so you're better equipped to prevent leave abuse in the workplace.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- The basics of FMLA and application tips
- Types of health conditions covered by the Act
- Tips, techniques, and recommendations to prevent FMLA abuse in the workplace
- State-specific FMLA laws, which provide more job protected leave and have lower thresholds for application
- How to structure the use of medical certifications, including how to obtain additional information and verify certifications when the initial certification is vague or incomplete
- What rights employees have in the certification process
- How to handle employee use of intermittent leave under FMLA
- What to do when you have an employee with a chronic case of "Monday-Friday-absence-itis"
In just 90 minutes, you'll get the answers to your toughest leave questions, so you can prevent FMLA abuse while staying in compliance. Register now for this informative event risk free.

|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.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
