Wednesday, Apr. 21

9:00 am PT | 12:00 pm ET

Although the FMLA was signed into law over 25 years ago, understanding its requirements can be overwhelming. This event will feature a recording of our FMLA Basics webinar, which will walk participants through the fundamentals of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and provide real-world best practices to effectively administer FMLA programs. The recording will be followed by a 30-minute live Q&A in which attendees can submit their toughest FMLA questions to our legal expert.

Whether you’re new to the absence industry or looking for a refresher, this event will prepare you to tackle the nuts and bolts of the FMLA with a deep dive into the foundational components of the law, and how to effectively operationalize them in your organization.

This webinar will be 90 minutes to accommodate additional Q&A.
