Ladies taking compliance training

Course description

The FMLA gives employers the right to obtain medical information to support an employee's claim for leave. Yet, many employers simply do know how to read the forms or how to make sure that the employee's physician is filling them out correctly. Employers often let incomplete or vague forms go when they could (and should) be asking more questions regarding whether the employee actually needs the leave requested.

The Family and Medical Leave Act is one of the most difficult (and frequently violated) employment law statutes. The statute is very employee friendly as it gives absolute job protection to those who qualify for leave under the FMLA. Most employees do not abuse these valuable rights but there are always some who want to play the system! The forms provided by the DOL such as the physician certification, etc., are a valuable tool employers can use to weed out those individuals who are determined to abuse the system. Are you using the physician certification form correctly to ensure that your employee truly has a serious health condition? When can you refuse to provide FMLA leave because the employee failed to provide the information you are entitled to know? This webinar will walk you through needed policies and procedures, your right to a certification, and more!
