FMLA Certification Inconsistencies & Inaccuracies: Spot Trouble & Legally Get Info for Designating Leave & Preventing Abuse - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to spot inaccuracies and inconsistencies in FMLA medical certification forms like WH-380-E and WH-380-F and how to get the information you need to certify and recertify leave and curb FMLA abuse.

Mastering FMLA compliance starts at the very beginning of the process, with the notification and certification requirements. The legal requirements related to medical certifications under the FMLA not only help employers to avoid legal pitfalls, but also enables employers to better detect and address FMLA fraud and abuse. 

Understanding the certification forms, such as WH-380-E and WH-380-F, enables employers to know what to look for in determining how to designate leave.

Use this on-demand webinar taking a deep dive into the various FMLA certification forms and the regulations that address certification requirements.

Attorney Todd Ewan of Fisher Phillips LLP will discuss the various tools, tips, and tricks built into the regulations to help employers ensure that employees and their doctors provide the information that is needed to evaluate their need for leave.

You’ll get practical guidance on the do’s and don’ts of handling FMLA leave and the necessary paperwork involved, and you will learn the action steps to follow when an employee comes to you with a medical leave request.

After attending this webinar you’ll also be able to:

  • Spot inconsistent or inaccurate language specified on medical certifications for FMLA leave, including WH-380-E and WH-380-F—and take appropriate action to get the information you need without violating federal law
  • Identify which requests for leave require a certification form, and which do not
  • Understand your organization’s rights when an employee fails to provide a timely certification to substantiate the need for leave
  • Handle situations when an employee’s leave usage exceeds the amount or frequency of leave certified by the health care provider
  • Master situations when you doubt the authenticity of an employee’s certification
  • Obtain clarification when you simply don’t understand the information contained within a certification
  • Correctly request recertification—including when and how to seek recertification
  • Manage situations where the certification provided by an employee also indicates that another accommodation besides leave is needed
  • Proceed when you receive information that the employee is engaging in activities that are inconsistent with their certifications
  • And much more!
