Webinar: ID# 1032090
Recorded CD or On-Demand
About This Course:
Many employers are faced with employee leave issues and may find it difficult in recognizing and dealing with issues that arise under the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Employers may not realize that the FMLA contains very specific requirements on notifying employees of their FMLA rights, when to provide notice and what information can be requested from an employee who seeks leave under the FMLA.

This webinar will help employers deal with these complex issues by focusing on appropriate record-keeping practices under the FMLA. The material will explain when and how an appropriate notice of FMLA rights is required, how to request a certification of a health care provider from an employee, how to deal with incomplete certifications, and the use of job descriptions and attendance policies in dealing with FMLA leave issues.

This information is critical for employers who deal with employees seeking FMLA leave and understanding how the use of certain documentation can help in handling such situations.
