Learn about the FMLA Guide, Compliance, and key facts about FMLA Leave. You will learn about important factors such as what forms to provide, eligibility, requirements and other such things, about the Family and Medical Leave Act.

It is importance that your organization knows and complies with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), as issued by the United States Department of Labor. Not being in compliance may result in adverse effects, so this webinar is useful for HR professionals, managers and business owners who do not know fully, about the FMLA.

Our speaker will review the in-depth guide on FMLA and walk you through it, explaining everything in simple detail. A few important points which the webinar covers are: eligibility requirements for taking FMLA leave, what qualifies as a serious health condition, what forms to provide to an employee who wants FMLA leave, and what relatives or family members an employee can take FMLA leave for. Some other points covered in the webinar are intermittent and reduced scheduled leave, taking FMLA leave concurrently with other paid leave, provision of a designation form (so the leave is counted as part of the employee’s 12-week leave entitlement), and provision of a medical certificate from the employee’s healthcare provider. The webinar will also tell you what you should do in case an employee fails to provide a medical certificate.

Understand the FMLA’s requirements and stay in compliance to ensure good results and smooth operation, by participating in this webinar. All attendees will be provided handouts at the end, which will help them remember what’s been discussed, and thus make the most of the webinar.
