The federal Family Medical Leave Act has been in effect for 25 years, and it still is one of the most complicated laws for employers. While the concepts of the FMLA are fairly straightforward, there are so many administrative tasks to be taken under the law, and failing to do them correctly can be a costly mistake for employers. Determining who is eligible for leave and what type of leave they can take are just a couple of issues employers face. Employers also need to ensure that the proper documentation is provided to and received from employees before and during their leave. This program helps anyone who has to deal with FMLA within their company. Review who eligible employers and employees are, and discuss in depth what kinds of leave employees may take and how to best manage that leave. Tracking down paperwork and controlling intermittent leave are some of the most complex problems employers face, and this material will discuss tips and hints for dealing with both of these problems. This information will help any person responsible for FMLA feel more confident and comfortable administering FMLA.
