CFRA Certifications Demystified: Critical Compliance Essentials To Keep You Out Of Legal Hot Water
|Date / Time:
Family leave is a hot topic among employers everywhere right now—and especially here in California.
Although the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are similar, there are several key differences, most of which make life even more challenging for HR professionals.
Last year, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed bills he said would create a disparity between CFRA and FMLA, but legislators are reviving those bills. If the legislation moves forward, changes may be on the horizon for California employers, including how medical certifications may be requested.
Join us when California attorney Marc Jacuzzi will provide the latest updates on how to ensure that your FMLA/CFRA certification requests comply with legal and regulatory requirements. You’ll learn what you may legally request in terms of a medical certification from your employees and strategies for getting the information you need to properly designate leave.

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!
