Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will clarify the circumstances under which illnesses expected to have relatively short durations – such as the flu – meet this definition of serous health condition and would therefore obligate employers to provide workers with Family Medical Leave (FML) time in a manner consistent with the law. Employers must know how “serious health condition” is defined under FMLA, and must provide FML accordingly in order to remain in compliance with FMLA.

Course "FMLA and the Flu" has been pre-approved by HRCI as eligible for 1 credits towards a participant's recertification upon full completion.
“The use of this seal is not an endorsement by the HR Certification Institute of the quality of the program”.

Why Should You Attend:

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) compliance is critical for employers. Companies that are covered under the FMLA are required to comply with the law, which requires them to provide eligible employees with up to twelve weeks of job protected leave under a few specific circumstances, including their own serious health condition or to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition.

The concept of “serious health condition” is very specifically defined; clear guidance was issued in 2010 that verified that the flu, and other fairly common illnesses, can – under specific circumstances – meet the definition of serious health condition. This webinar will provide a concise understanding of the law and offer best practices for incorporating a mechanism for compliance into FMLA administration.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Clear definition of “serious health condition”
  • Explanation of how the definition of “serious health condition” can apply to the flu
  • Examples of similar health circumstances where FMLA may also apply
  • Best practices for FMLA compliance/case management surrounding situations where employees have these types of conditions

Who Will Benefit:

  • HR managers and directors
  • HR generalists
  • Leave administrators
  • Small business owners
