As virtually every HR professional will tell you, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is one of the most confusing and complicated employment laws to administer. While providing job-protected leave for employees with serious health conditions or other qualifying events, it also presents the opportunity for misuse—or blatant abuse—by employees who want to mask attendance or performance problems, or who simply want more time off from work than otherwise would be allowed.
Please join me and my colleague, Jean Tomasco, for a free Robinson+Cole, LLP webinar on the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). It is scheduled to be held on July 17th from noon-1:00 pm ET. The program agenda includes FMLA developments at the U.S. Department of Labor, medical certification requirements and recent cases addressing leave, retaliation and interference.
