The Fundamentals of FMLA for Managers


Gain the checklist needed to ensure compliance with the FMLA.

With the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), many department managers struggle to understand the act's complex requirements, such as workplace notice rules, what qualifies for leave under the act, and what affirmative steps they are required to take when put on notice of an eligible employee's need for leave. Leave management becomes increasingly confusing when managers must navigate the differences between FMLA and a state family and medical leave law. This presentation will equip you with the checklist you need to ensure compliance with the FMLA, including how to issue spot when an employee may be eligible for leave under the act, how to properly designate (or deny) leave, and a manager's responsibilities while an employee is on FMLA leave and when the employee returns to the workplace. You will gain an understanding of the act's key terminology, hear examples of real court cases involving the act, and learn how to avoid FMLA missteps.
