Webinar: ID# 1035750
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
If the Department of Labor (DOL) takes an interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices, watch out! Should they uncover systemic FMLA problems, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.

The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA self-audit and correcting any problems before a DOL investigation or employee lawsuit arises. But what should you be looking at? How do you get started? And, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA audit leads to more questions than answers, such as:
  • Should we be keeping paper FMLA files, or are electronic records sufficient?
  • How much oversight should we really be giving to a third-party leave-management administrator?
  • What’s required on the FMLA report used to track FMLA leave?
  • How should we respond if we uncover problems?
