FMLA Extension: When 12 Weeks Is Not Enough

Webinar: ID# 1041526
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Employers regularly face employee leave requests. FMLA-obligated employers must give covered employees 12 weeks of leave. However, there are times when an employee might need more than 12 weeks of leave afforded under the FMLA.

Employers might be obligated to provide additional leave and don't always understand what their rights and obligations are when additional leave is requested.

This presentation will help employers understand what they need to consider when an employee seeks leave beyond the FMLA leave and how to proceed through the process as they work to determine whether to provide additional leave and for how long they need to provide it.

This course will provide employers with a framework they can use as they consider individual leave requests so that they can work to comply with requisite federal, state, and local laws.What You'll Learn:FMLA Basics
