Instructor: Bob Oberstein
Product ID: 706735
Training Level: Intermediate to Advanced

  • Duration: 90 Min
Although the Family Medical leave Act (FMLA)was enacted 18 years (1993) ago the workplace still has problems complying with its requirements. Sometimes that required compliance is ignored because either the employer or the employee is not aware of their obligations, rights, or both. This webinar is designed to make that compliance easier to understand regardless of if it is a first line supervisor, manager or leave/benefits administrator or the employee.

Read Frequently Asked Questions


Why Should You Attend:

It’s been said that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” and that “What you don’t know can hurt you.” This was never truer than with the FMLA. That’s because it is unlawful for an employer to interfere with, restrain, or deny the exercise of or the attempt to exercise any rights provided by FMLA. It is also unlawful for an employer to discharge or discriminate against any individual for opposing any practice, or because of involvement in any proceeding related to FMLA. So, all the more reason to become as knowledgeable as possible regarding one’s FMLA compliance obligations to avoid any legal complications. Do all first line supervisors, managers, or other staff including the employees know what to do when an FMLA issue comes up? Have they been given a road map that clearly gives them the step-by-step guidance they need to steer their way to compliance?

Topic Background:

The advent of the FMLA made it a workplace priority to give employees the ability to balance the demands of work and family and mandated a path/system for how that can be accomplished but also by simultaneously meeting the needs of the employer. But like all systems/paths there are processes and rules to follow and even though the FMLA has been in existence for 18 years it can still be a confusing area for compliance. However, in order to assist parties to better navigate their FMLA compliance this webinar will provide step by step information on each of the events that take place during the FMLA process from start to finish so everyone will be aware of their compliance obligations. Do you know if you are an eligible employer under FMLA or what the criteria is for employees to also comply with to qualify as eligible for protection under the FMLA? Or are you prepared to identify and comply with all exceptions under FMLA or if there should be changes in an employee’s circumstances? If you want to know all you can and need to answer these questions and more about FMLA leave then this webinar is for you!
