CFRA Abuse Busters: Practical—And Legal—Strategies For Preventing Misuse And Administering Discipline
|Date / Time:
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protect employees who need time off for a variety of reasons, and those reasons continue to grow!
Most employees are honest, but there will always be a few who are going to try to work the system. An employee may develop a mysterious case of “Monday-and-Friday-itis” or may look awfully robust in his or her social media updates, another may provide you with a medical “certification” that seems dubious at best.
As a savvy HR professional, what can you do when scenarios like this arise in your workplace? You can’t let the suspected abuse continue, but you also know that there are potential legal risks if you challenge (or discipline) the employee inappropriately.
The good news is that employers do have rights in this area. If you know exactly what your rights are and how to legally assert them, you don’t have to sit back and let dishonest employees abuse protected leave.
Don’t miss our comprehensive webinar when attorney Danielle Moore of Fisher Phillips will show you how to detect common abuse traps and fine-tune your CFRA abuse radar. You’ll learn to spot when protected family and medical leave is being misused, and how to navigate the web of leave laws to legally stop abusers.

|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.
