Family and Medical Leave Act problems are among the most vexing problems for companies. How have the courts been interpreting the FMLA and the way it intersects with the ADA and other employment-related laws? You’ll find out what has been decided recently and how the courts’ decisions may change the advice you give your clients.
Test your knowledge of how to handle intermittent leave and other common FMLA problems
Using cellphone polling technology, you’ll have fun testing yourself on whether FMLA violations exist in a variety of workplace situations. We will explore the complexities of intermittent leave, chronic conditions, and managing the use (and abuse) of leave benefits. You’ll also get answers to common questions about leave designation, proper notification, and integration of FMLA leave with paid leave benefits.
