Title:

CFRA Certifications: Critical Compliance Essentials To Keep You Out Of Legal Hot Water

SKU:WC-1021641
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Description:

Although the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are similar, there are several key differences when it comes to requesting medical certifications here in California.

HR professionals face significant challenges when employees need CFRA leave to care for a family member, specifically due to the expansion in other laws of “family member” to include a grandparent, grandchild, or parent-in-law, but not in CFRA or FMLA. These and other changes in the regulations will make concurrent leave more difficult to administer in conjunction with your paid leave policies.

Join us when attorney Danielle Garcia of Fisher & Phillips will provide the latest updates on how to ensure that FMLA/CFRA certification requests comply with state and federal law. You’ll discover what you may legally request in terms of a medical certification from your employees and strategies for getting the information you need to properly designate leave.

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.
