FMLA Certification Mistakes: How to Discover—and Correct—Unlawful Practices - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn FMLA certification mistakes to avoid—and what to do if you uncover problematic FMLA administration practices.

Medical certifications are used to help HR evaluate whether leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) must be granted (and, if so, for how long). They are also useful for helping employers combat FMLA abuse and fraud.

But there are strict rules on what kinds of certifications you can request—and when. If you get it wrong, you could be exposing your workplace to costly legal risks.

Use this highly rated on-demand webinar when a skilled labor and employment attorney will explain the most common compliance pitfalls relating to medical certifications, and how to avoid them.

You’ll learn:

  • Notice requirements concerning medical certifications
  • What you can and can’t do when you receive incomplete or vague certifications
  • How to handle certification issues when an employee’s leave request relates to a family member’s health condition
  • Certification requirements for intermittent or reduced-schedule leave
  • The right way to challenge a medical certification
  • What to do if you are unable to obtain a medical certification, despite repeated requests
  • Mistakes to avoid concerning fitness-for-duty certifications
  • Best practices for obtaining medical recertification under FMLA regulations
  • The consequences of an employee’s failure to provide sufficient medical certification in support of the need for FMLA leave
