FMLA in the Trenches is for moderate-to-experienced HR professionals and benefits administrators who are responsible for reviewing and/or making determinations about FMLA leave requests.

Rather than a review of the law’s basics, this session dives right into the complex (and legally dangerous) FMLA issues you face each day.

The FMLA opens a whole new area of potential risks and legal hoops to jump through. But it also hands you some additional tools to protect your company and effectively administer problematic leaves of absence. This session explores both.

Our promise: By the end of this recording, you will feel much more comfortable applying the FMLA in your workplace.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • How to manage the practical FMLA issues, not just the legal ones. You’ll learn not just what the FMLA says, but what it means.
  • How to leverage the employer protections in the law.
  • Important new FMLA court decisions. The FMLA is a moving target. Court decisions constantly reshape your compliance requirements.
  • Real-world scenarios. Speaker Michelle Maslowski explains compliance issues using real-world situations that you face daily in administration of FMLA leaves of absence.

This comprehensive session focuses not only on the requirements of the FMLA, but how those requirements work with the law that’s been an administrative nightmare for more than 20 years. You’ll learn how to administer and apply the FMLA in the face of regulatory updates, statutory changes and new court rulings.
