Curbing FMLA Abuse: How To Manage Manipulative Employees
|Date / Time:
Since the FMLA's enactment in 1993, employers have struggled with the administration of an otherwise fairly simple concept: protected leave from work for family and medical reasons.
Of course, actual FMLA compliance, and administering it within the law while not allowing employees to abuse this protection, is a much more difficult task.
From intermittent leave headaches to questionable medical certifications to employees who seem to know how to maneuver the law better than those who wrote it, HR professionals, managers and supervisors spend an inordinate amount of time dealing with FMLA issues.
This webinar will identify common areas of abuse with regard to FMLA leave, and provide employers with the tools to push back on misuse, to address employee problems even when protected leave is in the picture, and identify and tackle abuse when it is occurring.
Anyone involved in the administration of FMLA - from the details of the forms to the strategy of your organization's policies - will benefit from this course.

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!
