Paid leave remains a hot topic in the HR world and rightfully so, as Congress continues to argue over whether or not it should offer paid leave to workers, as part of the social safety net spending package.

While it remains to be seen whether this bill will pass, administering leave—paid or not—remains a challenge for even the most seasoned HR professional. One look at the U.S. Department of Labor’s fiscal year data for 2020 will prove this to be true! Last year, employers that violated the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) were hit with fines totaling over $1.1 million. Don’t end up becoming another statistic; get a firm grasp on the FMLA and remain in compliance today!

Join Skoler, Abbott, & Presser P.C. attorneys Meaghan E. Murphy and Maureen James for a live, interactive FMLA master class on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, and Wednesday, December 8, 2021. You’ll have the opportunity to get your most pressing FMLA questions answered in real time, uncover new strategies for complying with this challenging law, and more. You won’t want to miss the last installment of our 2021 FMLA Virtual Master Class!

Become a master of the FMLA, and simplify your leave program after attending our popular virtual master class, where you’ll learn:

  • How to determine FMLA eligibility quickly and easily;
  • What qualifies as a serious health condition;
  • Tips and guidance for “gray area” conditions, including multiple concurrent conditions;
  • The “do’s and don’ts” of return-to-work certifications;
  • Handling suspected FMLA abuse without running afoul of the law;
  • How to manage intermittent and reduced-schedule leave;
  • How the FMLA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) interact;

And more!

What past attendees are saying about this course…

“It’s a good program, really helped a lot to validate our company’s best practices.”

“Very informative, learned great examples in how to apply FMLA regulations to various situations.”

“Very informative and interactive program. I felt all speakers were very knowledgeable on the various FMLA topics.”

“The knowledge of the material was better than any other FMLA class I’ve taken. The ability to be able to ask questions and go over hypothetical situations was super beneficial! I loved doing this over two days – there was so much information, and it was nice to be able to reflect on each session for some time rather than having to cram it all in at once. The moderator was also amazing! Great job!”
