Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Is your company following the requirements of the Family and Medical Leave Act when dealing with employees who take frequent intermittent absences under the FMLA? Failure to follow the law properly could expose a company to potential damages. This webinar will help you ensure that your company is applying the FMLA properly when dealing with intermittent leave.

The Family and Medical Leave Act provides twelve weeks of unpaid leave for eligible employees. This leave can be taken in long blocks of time or in shorter absences, sometimes even just part of a workday. These shorter absences, when taken for an FMLA-qualifying reason, are protected by FMLA as intermittent leave. Intermittent leave can pose a number of logistical problems for employers, especially with respect to productivity and consistency.

However, FMLA provides numerous options for employers to manage intermittent leave. This webinar will cover those options and will help companies determine whether they are applying FMLA intermittent leave properly. It will also highlight various tools available to combat potential abuse of intermittent leave.

  • Short refresher on the basic framework of the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • How to calculate the amount of time an eligible employee has available under FMLA
