2022 FMLA Virtual Master Class: Basic Skills for Employee Leave Management

September 13-14, 2022 | 12:00 PM – 4:00PM Eastern, daily | Virtual

Overview

BONUS: When you register, you’ll receive a FREE FMLA Infographic which can be used as a reminder for how to remain compliant under the FMLA.

Inflation doesn’t just impact the economy; it can impact the amount of money you’ll pay for willfully violating America’s toughest employment laws.

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. And on January 14, 2022, the Department of Labor announced new inflation rates for willfully violating the posting requirements associated with the FMLA.

Learn about the monetary penalties for noncompliance, along with a broad overview of the FMLA, when you join expert attorneys from Fisher Phillips, on March 29-30, 2022. Uncover FMLA basics and be on your way to becoming a master of the FMLA with this special virtual event. Attendees will also receive 60-day access to the on-demand recording of this course.

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!

Check out what previous attendees have said about this virtual master class:

“Very informative/comprehensive. Good examples/hypotheticals too.”

“Incredibly informative and well put together, I really appreciated the real-world scenarios to practice and apply what was discussed.”

“Great program – the examples were helpful to apply the knowledge to unique circumstances. Even though I have been handling FMLA already, I found every minute of this course useful.”

“I enjoyed it and I received a lot of beneficial information. It was a refresher for me, but I also learned other things as well.”

And once you’ve mastered the basics of the FMLA, be sure to join us in April 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.
