You CAN review and revise your FMLA policies and implement them with more confidence—with an internal audit of your company’s employee leave practices, which will also curb leave abuse of your leave policies. This webinar will show you how to do that and more.
Has your employee been out for months, telling you s/he’s coming back “soon”? What about employees on intermittent leave for chronic, unpredictable medical conditions? What if If the Department of Labor (DOL) decides to investigate your company’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices and they uncover systemic FMLA problems? Uh oh! Your company could be end up paying exorbitant penalties.
FMLA poses challenges (and sometimes headaches) for Human Resources professionals, in-house counsel, supervisors, and business leaders charged with addressing both business needs and FMLA requirements at the same time. They cannot do so without the proper procedures and protocols, policies, forms, internal training, and fundamental knowledge of the law.
