Curbing FMLA Abuse: How to Manage Manipulative Employees

February 22

Learn the ins and outs of FMLA and what you can do to minimize potential leave abuse.

Many employers are faced with potential abuse and misuse of the protections afforded to employees under the Family and Medical Leave Act. Employers routinely describe compliance with the FMLA as somewhat or very difficult with respect to recognizing and rectifying an employee abusing FMLA protections. This information will provide steps to take in preventing employees from abusing FMLA protections from employee requesting FMLA leave to when an employee is on FMLA leave and how to manage recertification. The material will include how to evaluate if the FMLA request is proper, how to determine if an employee on leave is being dishonest, and updating current policies to limit potential abuse.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to identify potential FMLA abuse and misuse by employees.
  • You will be able to define FMLA leave and how employers can take steps to reduce abuse and misuse.
  • You will be able to review current FMLA policies and ensure proper policies and procedures are in place to limit abuse and misuse.
  • You will be able to discuss manners in which employees’ FMLA abuse and misuse can be reduced.
