Webinar Recording: Next Level Leave Administration – FMLA Guidance for 2022 and Beyond

Jai HookerResources, VEF Archives


Human resources professionals are feeling the pressure of being tasked with understanding and navigating multiple intersecting leave laws while guiding their workforce through the complexity of the leave landscape. To kick off the 2022 Virtual Education Forum series, we did a deep dive on FMLA leave.

In this session, we focused on the 12-week FMLA leave entitlement. What is a workweek? What happens if a company holiday occurs during leave? What if an employee is scheduled for overtime? Many factors must be considered when calculating an employee’s leave entitlement and usage. And there can be significant ramifications if not done correctly. We reviewed the regulations, discussed case law, and provided practical application tips to help industry professionals navigate this critical FMLA task.
