     The Business Impact of FMLA


    Learning Objectives:

    • Have a high level understanding of the Family Medical Leave Act
    • Initiate proactive methods to minimize abuse

      Tighten company policies to prevent abuse of medical leaves

    • Understand the business impact of medical leaves in terms of costs, productivity and employee morale

      This webinar will focus upon:

    The FMLA is an outstanding act providing employees with job protection for the addition of a child to a family, when dealing with a serious health condition for themselves or a family member and for assisting Military personnel with their personal and financial obligations before and after deployment.  FMLA is a highly interpretable, litigious and ever evolving act which creates risk for employers.  Unfortunately, this leave entitlement is prone to be misused which can be extremely costly to an organization.  This presentation will discuss how FMLA can be misused and what HR professionals and your supervisors can do to minimize the abuse, mitigate risk and reduce the financial impact on your company’s bottom line. Our presentation will provide participants with best practice suggestions, to make participants aware of the pitfalls of FMLA and demonstrate real life examples of abuse and how to protect your organization.
