Webinar Recording: Tackling Your FMLA Challenges

Jai HookerResources, Tools & Tactics Archives

A cornerstone of leave programs for nearly 30 years, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) offers critical coverage, but also presents a variety of administrative challenges. This session provided the practical answers you need.

From managing unscheduled intermittent leave to understanding retroactive designation, defining a family member, recertifying leaves, and employee and staff education, we focused on the five most common pain points of FMLA administration. We also provided an analysis of each of these challenges and explored its impact. Attendees walked away with the information, examples, and tools needed to determine how you can best resolve your organization’s FMLA challenges.
