Description:

As you unfortunately know all too well, employees who consistently come in late, leave work early, or call in on short notice can create major HR management headaches. As for the rest of the workforce, these disruptions damage both productivity and employee morale.

Some disruptions are unavoidable under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), but you’ve probably encountered one or more employees who try to work the system and take advantage.

Here’s some good news: when they do, you don’t have to sit back and take it.

Both CFRA and FMLA provide ways to identify the need for leave and, by practical application, thwart and prevent CFRA/FMLA abuse in many cases. Though that’s all well and good, the last thing you want is to have a legal blunder that could result in a court case when you’re trying to put a stop to employee leave abuse.

Join us for an in-depth webinar featuring live Q&A with California-based attorney, Miranda Watkins of Fisher Phillips LLP on the legal steps that you can take to prevent and stop leave abuses in California.

Learning Objectives:

  • How the CFRA, FMLA, and other leave laws intersect and interact in California
  • New changes to CFRA that bring it more closely in line with FMLA—and the key distinctions that remain
  • Best practices for obtaining documentation to determine if a California employee is entitled to protected leave
  • Practical tips on how to thwart leave abuse here in the Golden State without overstepping your legal bounds
  • Differences between reasonable and unreasonable accommodation requests for time off following the expiration of protected leave and requirements
  • What can you require/request from employees on medical leave
  • Tips for documenting leave requests and accommodation
  • Compliance essentials pertaining to pregnancy disability leave here in California
  • How to handle a situation where you need to obtain clarification on a medical certification due to vagueness, incompleteness, or ambiguity
  • The limits to your rights to obtain subsequent medical opinions concerning a serious health condition
  • Recent legal and legislative developments that should be on your radar

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.
