As an employer, suspected abuse of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can present many challenges. Leave abuse can increase an employer’s costs and deplete resources, while also greatly decreasing employee productivity and morale. However, there are ways to effectively navigate the leave abuse landscape, especially considering the court’s support of the honest belief defense.
In this session, our experts discussed scenarios where the honest belief defense has been effective in defending FMLA decisions. They contrasted these examples with highlights of areas where employers failed to make their case, and examined the differences.
