Webinar Recording: FMLA Communications — The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

DMECResources, VEF Archives

Communication requirements under the FMLA can be complex and challenging. In this webinar, we provided FMLA guidance and best practices using the DOL Employer’s Guide to the Family and Medical Leave Act and relevant case law. This session outlined and reviewed required communications with employees as well as best practices for employers.
