CFRA Abuse Busters: Practical—And Legal—Strategies For Preventing Misuse And Administering Discipline

Webinar: ID# 1022862
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protect employees who need time off for a variety of reasons, and those reasons continue to grow!

Most employees are honest, but there will always be a few who are going to try to work the system. An employee may develop a mysterious case of “Monday-and-Friday-itis” or may look awfully robust in his or her social media updates, another may provide you with a medical “certification” that seems dubious at best.

As a savvy HR professional, what can you do when scenarios like this arise in your workplace? You can’t let the suspected abuse continue, but you also know that there are potential legal risks if you challenge (or discipline) the employee inappropriately.

The good news is that employers do have rights in this area. If you know exactly what your rights are and how to legally assert them, you don’t have to sit back and let dishonest employees abuse protected leave.

Don’t miss our comprehensive webinar when attorney Danielle Moore of Fisher Phillips will show you how to detect common abuse traps and fine-tune your CFRA abuse radar. You’ll learn to spot when protected family and medical leave is being misused, and how to navigate the web of leave laws to legally stop abusers.
