Description:

Confusion surrounding FMLA intermittent leave is consistently one of HR's biggest headaches.

Employers struggle with figuring out how to provide the leave guaranteed under the law without putting undue burdens on themselves. That's a struggle that's bedeviled employers since the law went into effect nearly two decades ago.

In fact, dissatisfaction over the use of intermittent leave was identified as the "single most serious area of friction between employers and employees seeking to use FMLA leave," according to a recent Department of Labor report.

Participate in this advice-rich webinar and get tips to identify, correct, and prevent FMLA compliance problems so you can effectively manage all intermittent leave issues.

You'll learn:

  • How to tell what types of absences should be classified as intermittent or reduced schedule leave under FMLA
  • The supervisor or manager's role in helping you properly designate leave
  • Must-have call-in and attendance procedures to abide by
  • How often you can request recertification when the medical certification notes a specific duration of time
  • When clarifying the need for leave with the medical provider is permitted, and when you may want to consider getting a second or third opinion
  • What you can do to try and ensure that employees are only out for medical treatment at non-mission-critical work times
  • When a temporarily transfer to another position is generally warranted to minimize disruptions to your workplace
  • What you must be sure to do when transferring an employee temporarily to an alternative position
  • What you can do to cure employees who've got a case of the "Monday/Friday call-in syndrome"
  • Legal strategies for verifying employees' stated reasons for their absences
  • How far your right to request recertification goes when you suspect an employee of abusing the system
  • How to get the FMLA medical certifications you need to authenticate intermittent or reduced schedule leave without overstepping federal legal bounds
  • How to enforce your call-in and attendance policy in compliance with federal law to effectively curb FMLA intermittent leave abuse
  • How to properly calculate the leave entitlement for an exempt employee that works in excess of 40 hours per week
  • And more!

In just 90 minutes, you'll get the answers to your toughest intermittent leave questions so you can prevent FMLA abuse and stay in compliance. Register now for this informative event risk free.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD 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.
