Fundamentals of the Family and Medical Leave Act
Of the many government regulations affecting employers and employees, the one with which covered employers will deal regularly is the FMLA. The statute has been amended in the last few years and new regulations are in the works.
In addition to being certain to comply with the FMLA in allowing employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave (and in some instances substantially more), employers need to make informed decisions regarding the structure and implementation of FMLA.
Careful planning of your administration can help to reduce abuse of the leave benefit by employees. This online compliance Training & webinar on Fundamentals of the Family and Medical Leave Act will explain details of the benefits provided by the FMLA, suggestions on administration of the FMLA, and suggestions on preventive steps employers can take to reduce employee abuse.
The statute has been amended in the last few years, and new regulations are in the works.Virtually every HR Director in a company of 50 or more employees will have to administer FMLA leave. One of the most common complaints among employers, however, is that some employees will seek to abuse FMLA leave. Such abuse can impose significant cost upon employers in terms of time and money.
This webinar is designed to provide a comprehensive view of the FMLA and provide pragmatic tips on structuring and administering your FMLA program, as well as addressing employee abuse.
