Webinar Recording: FMLA Administration in the Digital Age

Jai HookerResources, VEF Archives

Technology is present in all aspects of our lives, and that includes accessing and administering the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). But how does the transition to online leave requests, submission of intermittent time through portals, and tracking of available time using software intersect with the employer’s responsibilities? Are there considerations that an employer should be aware of as technology is changing the way employees request leave? And how does this impact the process and requirements for employers? What should employers make sure they are doing to remain compliant? And what digital resources are available to help both employers and employees regarding the FMLA?

This session answered these questions and more.
