FMLA/CFRA Self-Audits in California: Find and Fix Your Leave Practice Problems Before the Feds and State Do

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to conduct a FMLA/CFRA self-audit in California to find and fix your leave administration practices before DOL or DLSE watchdogs do.

If federal or state regulators take a sudden interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) practices, watch out! Should they uncover systemic problems in either, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.

The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA/CFRA self-audit and correcting any problems before an investigation or employee lawsuit arises. But what should you be looking at? How do you get started? And, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA/CFRA audit leads to more questions than answers, such as:

  • Should we be keeping paper FMLA/CFRA files, or are electronic records sufficient?
  • How much oversight should we really be giving to a third-party leave-management administrator?
  • What’s required on the FMLA report used to track FMLA leave?
  • What specific CFRA documents should we be keeping, separate of FMLA?
  • How should we respond if we uncover problems?


Use this on-demand webinar to learn how to conduct a thorough FMLA/CFRA self-audit, featuring live Q&A with employment attorney Marc Jacuzzi of Simpson, Garrity, Innes & Jacuzzi PC.

You’ll learn:

  • The importance of understanding FMLA and CFRA requirements and recent updates
  • Why conducting a FMLA/CFRA self-audit is always a smart maintenance move
  • What your audit should cover and what the DOL will look for during a FMLA investigation—including FMLA recordkeeping, training, leave procedures, and more
  • What legal changes in California are happening in 2019 and what you need to do as part of your self-audit now
  • Why training employees in FMLA and CFRA compliance is essential—and pointers on how to ensure that managers know the proper steps to take to respond to requests, returns to work, etc.
  • The differences between what federal and California regulators will look for, and how to adjust your audit appropriately to make sure you’re covering all your necessary bases
  • Why communicating your FMLA and CFRA leave policy—and having a policy readily available—is so important
  • How to ensure that your FMLA/CFRA forms are up-to-date and compliant
  • The importance of proper FMLA- and CFRA-related correspondence
  • How to ensure that you’re following recertification guidelines within the proper timeframe
