FMLA Certifications: A Step-by-Step Blueprint For Managing Leave, Minimizing Abuse, And Preventing Lawsuits
|Date / Time:
Want to avoid fraudulent leave? You need to ensure correct use of FMLA medical certifications. Knowing how medical certifications work can help you determine who should be approved for leave and spot potentially fraudulent requests.
The certification process is far from straightforward, to say the least, and the law limits your ability to question an employee or request additional information. So, what do you do? Get advice from a proven expert.
Join us for the webinar that will help HR professionals across the country tackle one of their toughest challenges. Attorney Danielle Garcia of Fisher Phillips will show you how to master the key steps of FMLA certification, including how you can get the information you need from the FMLA medical certification to make the right call regarding the request for leave—and even detect potential abuses of the system.

|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.
