Intermittent And Reduced-Schedule CFRA Leave: How To Ensure Compliance And Avoid Costly Errors
|Date / Time:
Last summer, new regulations were made to the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). Eligibility requirements, timing and notice requirements, medical certification rules, benefits provisions, and defenses to an employee’s fraudulent use of CFRA were all impacted.
While there are now fewer differences between CFRA and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), certain distinctions still remain.
In order to stay compliant, you must have a good handle on the latest changes, as well as the other aspects of CFRA/FMLA administration that continue to challenge even the most experienced California HR professionals.
Join us when attorney Ryan D. Wheeler of Fisher & Philips LLP will discuss best practices for navigating intermittent and reduced schedule leave to comply with CFRA and FMLA rules, so you can ensure smooth operations and avoid costly legal missteps.

|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.
