Most employment lawyers would agree: the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) remains one of the most (if not the most) difficult employment laws to administer. The federal regulations are lengthy and detail-oriented, setting forth various compliance deadlines, rules, and (of course) exceptions.

While FMLA leave compliance can be tricky for employers with the best of intentions, surveys have found that a large percentage of managers don’t even fully understand FMLA basics. This likely means employers need to reexamine their FMLA training practices for managers—and what better way than with our 2022 FMLA Virtual Master Class: Basic Skills for Employee Leave Management.

Join Teresa Shulda, a partner at Foulston Siefkin, for a live, interactive FMLA master class on Tuesday, January 18, 2022 and Wednesday, January 19, 2022. Uncover FMLA basics and be on your way to becoming a master of the FMLA with this special virtual event!

Through this informative training, your HR managers will be able to simplify your organization’s leave program and also 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!

Once you master the basics of the FMLA, be sure to join legal experts, Dena Calo and Lisa Koblin of Saul Ewing, on February 23-24, 2022 for our brand new, 2022 Advanced FMLA Virtual Master Class, where you will dive into situations that require a more advanced knowledge of the FMLA and FMLA compliance.
