Managing Intermittent Leave in California: How to Be Fair and Consistent While Curbing Abuse
|Date / Time:
In theory, managing intermittent leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act seems straightforward enough. Keep good records, and it should be simple if you're organized, right?
Not so fast! How do you handle the one employee who seems to always conveniently have a doctor's appointment just as soon as a nice day is in the forecast? Or the person who routinely takes leave with little notice, leaving you in a lurch?
And that's the just the beginning of the headache.
The federal law covering leave is complex and difficult to interpret, and when you add new regulations to the mix, even the most seasoned HR professional can get tripped up. Plus, as with many areas of employment law, California imposes its own set of employee-friendly rules that make intermittent leave even more confusing and burdensome from an HR perspective.
How can you best get a handle on it all?
For starters, join us for an in-depth California-specific webinar on September 11, led by an experienced employment law attorney. You'll get up to date on the latest regulations as well as real-life best practices that will make your leave administration duties easier.
Participate in this interactive webinar for California employers, and you'll learn:
- How FMLA and the changes to the law in the past few years affect your business and the intermittent leave obligations you have to your employees
- How the California Family Rights Act comes into play
- How recent changes to Pregnancy Disability Leave in California affect your intermittent leave calculations
- Why a rolling calendar might be a wise choice for your company, and how you should implement it
- When it's legal - and safe - to deny an intermittent leave request
- How to be prepared for those surprise intermittent leaves
- The best way to investigate and discipline habitual intermittent leave abusers - and to do so without ending up on the wrong side of harassment or retaliation claims
- What you can require for advance notice and medical certifications from employees requesting intermittent leave
- When can ask for more details about intermittent leave requests, and when you should stay away
- When it's OK to ask for second, or even third, medical opinions - and who picks up the tab
- How to move employees around or adjust work schedules to accommodate intermittent leave requests, and to do so without disrupting your workplace or leaving yourself open to legal action
- And much more!
In just 90 minutes, you'll be walked through real-life situations that arise under FMLA and CFRA and get tips on tactics to help you successfully and legally manage your way through even the most complicated of scenarios. The more you know, the better off you, and your company, will be.

|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.
