Webinar: ID# 1023747
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Since FMLA covers reduced-schedule and intermittent leave for certain serious health conditions and medical treatment, a few lost hours here and there can really add up and sap productivity.

Of course, employees usually have legitimate reasons for taking intermittent or reduced-schedule leave, but there are instances of FMLA abuse and fraud. It’s HR’s job to stop employees from milking the system, without opening the employer up to retaliation lawsuits.

As you know, this is a delicate balancing act. How do you keep tabs on employees without infringing upon their rights to FMLA leave?

Join us when two seasoned labor and employment lawyers, Jeffrey Shoskin and Jeffrey Lindemann, will reveal best practices for FMLA administration with respect to intermittent leave and reduced-schedule leave. You’ll learn how to comply with legal requirements, spot instances of FMLA abuse, and respond in a timely and legal manner to minimize the adverse effects such abuse can have on workplace productivity and morale.

Plus, you’ll learn:
  • Applicable FMLA regulations governing intermittent and reduced schedule leaves
  • How to proactively use your company’s attendance call-in policies to contain FMLA abuse
  • The “red flags” to watch for that could signal FMLA abuse—and how to respond
  • Best practices for containing FMLA abuse during an otherwise approved leave
  • How to address performance problems with employees on FMLA intermittent or reduced-schedule leave
  • And more!
