Since the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) was signed into law, employers have been faced with the challenge of ensuring compliance with the statute’s requirements while also developing strategies to prevent employees from taking unfair advantage of the system. Although confusion surrounding employers’ obligations under the FMLA continues to be an issue, many employers have successfully developed policies to prevent employees from taking FMLA leave they are not entitled to take.

Abuse can be difficult to identify and may be even more difficult to address. In addition to the FMLA, there are a host of other laws that protect employees while taking leave. While most employees will not abuse these rights, many will.

Those who abuse the system create many headaches for employers and causes morale problems among those who are not abusing the system. Expert Susan Fahey Desmond will look into all these issues and help to understand how do you identify the FMLA abuse and what can you do about it.

Session Highlights:

• What types of leave are most likely to be abused and why.

• Using medical certifications to combat abuse.

• “Red flags” that suggest an employee might to be abusing leave.

• Conducting the proper investigation into potential abuse.

• Avoiding retaliation claims when terminating after FMLA leave.

Why You Should Attend:

Employees believe that they can pull the wool over your eyes with leave of absences and the FMLA. Although some use a leave of absence for legitimate health conditions, others abuse the FMLA and your leave of absence policies and try to get away with leave of absences even though they are not even entitled to the protections of the FMLA or your leave policies. This webinar will provide you with tips to avoid FMLA abuse in your workplace.
