FMLA Certifications: A Step-By-Step Blueprint For Managing Leave, Minimizing Abuse, And Preventing Lawsuits
|Date / Time:
Ensuring the correct use of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) medical certifications is one of the best ways for HR to stay on top of employee leave and avoid fraudulent leave.
Knowing how to systematically use medical certifications can help you determine who should be approved for leave and even realize when a fake claim has been made. Most importantly, it can help prevent costly lawsuits against your organization.
Join us for an in-depth webinar on one of HR’s toughest challenges. Attorney Danielle Garcia of Fisher & Phillips will teach you how to master FMLA certification challenges, and how to keep your company out of court. Attorney Garcia will also reveal how you can get the information you need from the FMLA medical certification to make the right call regarding one’s request for leave and to help spot and prevent FMLA abuse.

|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.
