FMLA in the News: What's Hot & What's Not

2014 Annual Conference
Workplace Application: This session will enhance your ability to identify FMLA qualifying events, compare and contrast alternative courses of action and mitigate risk.

Repeated on Tuesday at 10:45 a.m.

Each year the U.S. DOL publishes its enforcement data and each year the trends demonstrate areas that continue to challenge employers as well as areas of improvement. Add to that recent court decisions that lend ever-evolving interpretations regarding employers’ obligations in FMLA administration. Join this interactive session as we look at the top three categories of FMLA violations, recent court decisions, compare and contrast proactive practices for policy development and practical FMLA administration.
