OVERVIEW

This webinar will help you get a working knowledge of how you can minimize your company’s exposure to employee abuse of family and medical leave – be it under the FMLA, ADA, or workers’ comp or other applicable family and medical leave laws.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

Suppose one or more of your employees has taken a leave of absence, and your company or department is buckling under the added stress—and you suspect that one or more of those employees may be taking advantage, and may not really be in need of family or medical leave – or may even not be entitled to it.

What if one or more of your employees asks for intermittent leave? Administration of continuous leave can be challenging enough. Intermittent leave presents its own administrative challenges. How do you keep track of everything and prevent abuse of employee leaves? You can curb employee leave abuse. But how do you do it? Don’t despair!
