Making Bonus Programs FMLA Compliant
|Date / Time:
On one hand, the FMLA prohibits employers from interfering with an employee's right to FMLA leave. On the other hand, should an employer have to pay a full bonus to an employee who was absent due to FMLA leave? The Old Approach
Regulations and case law have both developed and shifted since the FMLA's passage in 1993. This webinar reviews the tension between the FMLA and bonus programs, the changing law and practical approaches to making bonus programs both effective incentives and FMLA compliant.
The New Approach
- The Conflict Between the FMLA and Bonus Payments
- The Old Regulation
- Sommer v. Vanguard Group – Third Circuit
- The 2009 Revisions to the FMLA Regulations
- Subsequent Case Law

|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.
