Advanced FMLA: Issues and Solutions

Gain a better understanding with advanced knowledge in FMLA issues and solutions.

Many employers manage FMLA on a day-to-day basis, but are they doing it thoroughly and with an eye towards preventing FMLA litigation? This topic will first serve as an FMLA refresher and then work to identify and tackle FMLA's more intricate issues. You will learn when and how to reach out to an FMLA applicant's physician for certification questions, how to best manage intermittent leave, requests for work breaks under FMLA, FMLA abuse and, of course, how to manage FMLA with COVID-19 issues.
