FMLA: Know the Basics - Manage it Better!
Tuesday 06/25/2024 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Early Career
Workplace Application:
Attendees will receive a review of the Federal regulation surrounding FMLA along with the guidelines on how to effective apply the regulations in the workplace. Those that attend will leave with a better understanding of how to best apply the guidelines, support their employees, and help management better understand the ins and outs of managing this type of leave. Best practices will be shared! 


It seems like we receive an FMLA request almost every day anymore. Continuous leaves are, generally, simple to deal with and very straight forward – it's hard to 'fake' an appendicitis! Intermittent FMLA, on the other hand, is an automatic, cringe worthy event. This session is designed to help the HR Practitioner avoid the 'cringe' by reviewing the tools we have at our disposal to remain compliant AND minimize potential abuse of the system.  The session covers the basics but is good for mid-level professionals as well - the more we are familiar with the regulations, the better we can apply them and minimize our organizations' exposure to abuse.

Learning Objectives:

  • Compliant and effective management of intermittent FMLA.
  • Ease practitioner's anxiety over intermittent requests.
  • Best practices for risk reduction.
  • Checklist for intermittent leave management.
