UPCOMING SEMINAR/WEBINAR: The (F)riday (M)onday (L)eave (A)ct vs. Legitimate FMLA Leave
The serious health condition of an employee or his or her family member may entitle the employee to protected leave under either the state or federal Family and Medical Leave Act. But how do you manage this leave? Or, once you've figured out how to manage the leave, what do you do when you find out that during the course of the leave the employee has taken a long awaited trip to the Caribbean when they indicated they were caring for an ill family member? Or, how do you respond when an employee's intermittent leave coincidentally is occurring to provide the employee with long weekends?
This program will present a hypothetical FMLA leave situation in which the employer is presented with a series of complex challenges. Led by Tawny Alvarez, attendees will discuss best practices for responding to these challenges and limiting liability as they navigate around this complex leave statute.
