FMLA Self Audits: Make Sure You Are in Compliance

Learn how self-auditing your FMLA program can lead to improved compliance.

The FMLA continues to pose challenges in the workplace. Whether it's the employee on intermittent leave due to an unpredictable or subjective chronic condition or the employee who has been off work for four months and keeps saying he will be returning soon, human resources professionals, in-house counsel, supervisors, and business leaders must constantly balance business needs and the requirements of the FMLA. Without the proper procedures and protocols, policies, forms, internal training, and fundamental knowledge of the law and what it requires, FMLA compliance is difficult to obtain. Review, step-by-step, how businesses and organizations can audit their FMLA practices and procedures in order to ensure compliance. A working knowledge of the FMLA is recommended.
