FMLA Self Audits: How to Spot and Fix Recordkeeping, Training, and Procedural Errors that Could Spark Legal Liability

Live Webinar: Thursday, April 9, 2020

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


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to conduct a self-audit to determine if and how your FMLA administration practices could put your organization at risk for costly penalties and lawsuits.



If the Department of Labor (DOL) takes an interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices, watch out! Should they uncover systemic FMLA problems, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.

The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA self-audit and correcting any problems before a DOL 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 audit leads to more questions than answers, such as:

  • Should we be keeping paper FMLA 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?
  • How should we respond if we uncover problems?


Join us on April 9
to learn how to conduct a thorough FMLA self-audit, featuring live Q&A with Attorney Todd Ewan, a labor and employment partner at Fisher Phillips LLP. He’ll cover the importance of understanding FMLA requirements and recent updates and why engaging in a FMLA self-audit as a smart maintenance move.

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

  • Conduct a comprehensive FMLA self-audit that addresses FMLA recordkeeping, training, leave procedures, and more
  • Spot the types of issues the DOL will look for during a FMLA investigation
  • Train managers on the proper steps to take to respond to requests, returns to work, etc.
  • Effectively communicate your FMLA leave policy
  • Ensure that your FMLA forms are up-to-date and compliant
  • Recognize proper FMLA-related correspondence
  • Follow recertification guidelines within the proper timeframe
  • And more!
