The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows qualified employees to seek time off work because they need to care for a family member who is ill or because they need to care for themselves due to a serious health condition. Compliance with the FMLA is crucial, and training in this arena can help you determine who qualifies for leave, how long leave can last and what specifications you need to meet to stay fully compliant with all current rules of the FMLA.

Why Do You Need Online FMLA Training Seminars?
FMLA is a 1993 law that allows qualifying employees to take unpaid leave of up to 12 weeks annually. This leave must be in order to care for their own serious health condition, to adopt or give birth to a child or to care for someone who is in the immediate family and requires help with a serious medical condition. Determining who qualifies for this unpaid leave and meets the conditions covered can be complex. Compliance is essential, and qualified training ensures that your company obeys all FMLA requirements.
One challenging thing with the FMLA is that it is the responsibility of the employer to determine which leave requests are covered by the law and are job-protected. Workers do not specifically need to request FMLA leave in order to qualify. In addition, it is important that any qualifying employee has their job protected. If they are terminated while they are away or if their request is not handled correctly, companies can face fines and penalties. It is important your entire management and HR team is aware of FMLA rules and takes the proper steps whenever an employee needs to take time off. Quality FMLA training ensures you know which requests for leave are affected by this law and can act accordingly.
