FMLA Compliance

Avoid costly mistakes from ever-changing FMLA legal requirements

Practical, Everyday Applications of FMLA for Your Workplace

It's been over a decade since the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 was passed by Congress. Unfortunately, the confusion that surrounded the law in the beginning has only deepened through the years. Court decisions and opinions by the Department of Labor (DOL) — which issues the operational regulations — have muddied the waters and made human resources personnel unsure about what to do.

Some make mistakes that cost their organizations plenty. Others stick their heads in the sand and hope for the best. Still others endure sleepless nights and worry constantly because they know the stakes are extremely high and the opportunities for error practically endless.

Make no mistake: FMLA does NOT stand for "Friendly Medical Leave Act." In fact, it's anything but.

Consider what these cases taught …

  • Saroli vs. Automation & Modular Components, Inc. — It is extremely costly to only grudgingly honor an employee's right to leave and to maintain a corporate culture that treads on employees' rights.
  • Smith vs. K&F Industries, Inc. — There ARE circumstances in which organizations with fewer than 15 employees can be liable under FMLA.
  • Spangler vs. Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines — Even a conversational, casual reference to a recurring medical condition can constitute a request for FMLA leave.

These examples go on and on — and that's why HR personnel and managers can't afford to assume that what they think they know about FMLA is true. Attend this seminar and get the practical, applied facts that will keep your company out of trouble.
