Legal Issues to Avoid in FMLA

Ensure you are managing FMLA leave appropriately and in compliance with the requirements.

Since the FMLA became law in 1993, employers have struggled with how to manage FMLA leave appropriately. In the intervening years, the eligibility requirements have changed to add coverage for certain leaves related to military service, and to better define the role of joint employers in the FMLA context. With these changes, and the increased use of FMLA leave, employers have been challenged to comply with the FMLA's notice requirements, and its certification and recertification procedures. This topic will teach employers how to comply with the FMLA's notice requirements, and to get the most out of certifications of health care providers. The material will provide critical guidance on how to get value from the recertification process, and weed out fraudulent claims for leave. Employers will learn how to avoid intermittent leave abuse, and use job descriptions proactively. Plus, the information will provide tips for preventing FMLA retaliation claims. This topic is critical for employers to ensure they are in full compliance with the requirements of the FMLA, and managing FMLA leave appropriately.
