ABOUT THE EVENT

Understanding how to administer FMLA leave is hard enough without having to also figure out intermittent FMLA leave. This legalistic and complicated aspect of the FMLA will be broken down for your HR Department into easy to understand compliance tips and how-to’s to ensure that your organization is in compliance and knows how to ensure that your employees are not abusing intermittent FMLA leave. This webinar will provide the answers to your most challenging intermittent FMLA questions such as whether you are allowed to transfer an employee to another position that better accommodates intermittent FMLA leave, whether employees are always entitled to intermittent FMLA leave and how to prevent intermittent FMLA leave abuse.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review intermittent leave requirements step-by-step.
  • Discuss the definition of a “serious condition” and strategies for getting an employee to provide notification to the employers.
