Webinar: ID# 1023839
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
If the Department of Labor (DOL) or the Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH) take an interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)/California Family Rights Act (CFRA) practices, watch out! If they uncover systemic FMLA/CFRA problems, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.

The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA/CFRA self-audit and correcting any problems before an 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/CFRA audit reveals problems?

Join us for legal insights into how to conduct a thorough FMLA/CFRA self audit. Attorney Danielle Garcia will help you feel secure in your FMLA/CFRA practices and help you endure possible investigations by regulators.
