Overview : Of the many government regulations affecting employers and employees, the one with which covered employers will deal regularly is the FMLA. The statute has been amended in the last few years and new regulations are in the works.
In addition to being certain to comply with the FMLA in allowing employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave (and in some instances substantially more), employers need to make informed decisions regarding the structure and implementation of FMLA.
Why should you attend: The statute has been amended in the last few years, and new regulations are in the works.
Virtually every HR Director in a company of 50 or more employees will have to administer FMLA leave. One of the most common complaints among employers, however, is that some employees will seek to abuse FMLA leave. Such abuse can impose significant cost upon employers in terms of time and money.
