Ten Things That You Could Be Doing Wrong with Your FMLA Administration and How to Fix Them

Live Webinar: Thursday, June 11, 2020

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Attendees will come away with an understanding of areas in their FMLA administration where they could be making legal missteps, and how to address and fix those things to avoid costly legal repercussions.



Having an FMLA leave policy in place and making sure you tick all the boxes can save you from a number of problems that could arise regarding employee leave time. However, there are ten things that you could easily be doing wrong in administering your FMLA policy, so you should review your practices to ensure that you are not making these mistakes. The FMLA policy should communicate clearly to employees so they understand the expectations and obligations for them under the Act, and you should be administering it consistently and correctly.

For instance, are you following the correct timelines under the FMLA each and every time an FMLA issue is triggered?  Are you using the correct documentation? What are you doing when FMLA leave exhausts, but the person cannot return to work?

Find out more. Attend our in-depth webinar on June 11 with expert employment attorney Todd Ewan and learn how you can fix mistakes in your FMLA administration to save you untold hassles and possible legal issues in the future.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Ensure that your eligibility requirements for FMLA leave are clearly stated in your policy
  • Include the DOL’s FMLA poster or its details in your policy
  • Clearly define the 12-month FMLA leave year in your policy
  • Make sure that if you-use-paid time off concurrently with FMLA leave that you’re compliant, and that is also clearly stated in your policy
  • Create clear guidelines for employees’ obligations to give notice for foreseeable or unforeseeable leave
  • Clarify the employee’s obligations to pay their share of health insurance premiums while on leave
  • Recertification requirements—make sure employees know they may possibly be subject to recertification or second opinions
  • And much more!
