Webinar Recording: Absence Management – Take The Absence Challenge

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives


Although the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has been around for several years, many employers still struggle with knowing and applying the law. Compliance remains one of the top challenges for employers when managing absences.

In this session, we tested your absence management knowledge through a series of scenarios and provided best practice responses. The scenarios covered areas such as managing intermittent leave, coordinating leave types and eligibility, responding to leave requests, and navigating state laws. No matter your experience level, this webinar checked your knowledge and equipped you with strategies for designing a compliant absence management program.
