About This Course:
Want to avoid fraudulent leave? You need to ensure correct use of FMLA medical certifications. Knowing how medical certifications work can help you determine who should be approved for leave and spot potentially fraudulent requests.

The certification process is far from straightforward, to say the least, and the law limits your ability to question an employee or request additional information. So, what do you do? Get advice from a proven expert.

Join us for the webinar that will help HR professionals across the country tackle one of their toughest challenges. Attorney Danielle Garcia of Fisher Phillips will show you how to master the key steps of FMLA certification, including how you can get the information you need from the FMLA medical certification to make the right call regarding the request for leave—and even detect potential abuses of the system.
