Employers’ Guide to the FMLA: How to Identify Abuse at Workplace

Free Webinar

  • 60 minutes

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. How do you identify the abuse and what can you do about it?

Join expert Susan Desmond as she guides you in tackling these issues.
