FMLA Certifications: A Step-By-Step Blueprint For Managing Leave, Minimizing Abuse, And Preventing Lawsuits

About This Course:
Ensuring the correct use of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) medical certifications is one of the best ways for HR to stay on top of employee leave and avoid fraudulent leave.

Knowing how to systematically use medical certifications can help you determine who should be approved for leave and even realize when a fake claim has been made. Most importantly, it can help prevent costly lawsuits against your organization.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on one of HR’s toughest challenges. Attorney Danielle Garcia of Fisher & Phillips will teach you how to master FMLA certification challenges, and how to keep your company out of court. Attorney Garcia will also reveal how you can get the information you need from the FMLA medical certification to make the right call regarding one’s request for leave and to help spot and prevent FMLA abuse.
