Given the complexities of the Family and Medical Leave Act, employers often fall prey to dishonest employees who take advantage of their FMLA rights by seeking intermittent leave to avoid discipline for poor attendance or by requesting leave for reasons not covered by the FMLA.
In this presentation, Jeff Nowak, labor and employment attorney and the author of the FMLA Insights blog, will identify and address a number of difficult issues and scenarios employers face when administering the FMLA, including:
• How to fight FMLA abuse by using the FMLA regulations to your advantage
• Documenting FMLA situations effectively to curb FMLA abuse
• Handling a main culprit of FMLA abuse – intermittent FMLA leave
• How to handle employee absences that regularly occur on Mondays and Fridays
• Investigating social media posts that indicate an employee may be abusing leave
Jeff will present for 60 minutes regarding the above topic. The remainder of the time will be devoted to Q&A and information regarding BASIC’s Full Circle of services.
BASIC’s webinar is pending approval by The HR Certification Institute for 1.0 HRCI. HRCI credits are advanced professional credentials for HR professionals worldwide.
