Tips For Managing FMLA Leave In A Changing Legal Environment
|Date / Time:
Administering leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act can prove to be a challenge to even the most sophisticated and experienced employer.
With the expansion of leave rights through recent regulations as well as court interpretations of the FMLA, such challenges continue to mount. Further, administering FMLA leave along with other forms of leave (e.g., ADA, workers compensation and short term disability) can pose additional challenges, particularly when more than one administrator or decision maker is involved.
This webinar will provide a detailed overview of the FMLA as it has changed over the past few years and provide practical advice on compliance with the FMLA.

|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.
