WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Most HR professionals know the basics of FMLA compliance. Unfortunately, the basics are just not enough when it comes to the FMLA particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic and with a new Administration. The FMLA is a complex law and can get confusing, especially when it intersects with ADA, FLSA, Workers’ Compensation and other medical condition/leave of absence laws-both federal and state.  FMLA, go below the surface and there are many difficult questions. For example, what’s the best method for calculating FMLA intermittent leave or what are the risks associated with calling leave FMLA when it’s not, etc. to mention just two of the areas for concern. Bob Gregg, attorney at law, an FMLA compliance expert, will discuss the problem practices and pitfalls that get employers in trouble and suggest solutions for these difficult issues during these uncertain times so that you remain in compliance.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

During this informative webinar Mr. Gregg will be discussing:

  • Risks associated with calling leave FMLA when it’s not
  • How much FMLA does the employee get? (it’s not all the same, measuring eligible hours, and intermittent leave)
  • Personal liability of supervisors
  • What if the employee doesn’t ask for FMLA?
  • What is falsification of leave?
  • Interrelated laws – the complex dance of ADA, Workers’ Comp, FMLA, GINA, etc.
  • If Light Duty counts toward use of FMLA
  • Employers with different locations, some with more and some fewer than 50 people. What does the multi-location employer do?
  • Interference and off-duty land mines
