Think employee leave management is a one-time policy issue? Be careful! New and confusing regulations, conflicting court decisions, and increasing employee abuse of FMLA protections means family and medical leave will remain one of HR’s biggest management headaches. 

To help you master your obligations and avoid costly penalties, the publisher of Texas Employment Law Letter has crafted a cost-effective and engaging solution: 2017 FMLA Master Class: Texas - Advanced Skills for Employee Leave Management. This intensive day-long workshop provides the comprehensive knowledge you need to master real-life issues. An experienced Texas attorney will provide substantive instruction on FMLA compliance in light of new and existing regulations, court rulings, and application of this far-reaching law. You’ll engage with your instructor and your peers, solving challenges you face day in and day out concerning intermittent leave, return to work, employee performance, and much more. 

This event teaches employee leave management essentials while instilling the confidence you need to make the right coverage calls, control abuse and fraud, answer the toughest questions from employees and your executive colleagues, and avoid the expensive missteps that have devastated other employers. 

You’ll enhance your advanced-practitioner skill set when you attend this satisfaction-guaranteed event and learn: 

  • How to judge a serious health condition the way judges do, and eliminate disputes about what does and doesn’t constitute it 
  • The latest FMLA revisions, so you don’t risk noncompliance 
  • What recent FMLA court decisions really mean, so you can adjust your policies accordingly 
  • Where FMLA recordkeeping trips up even the savviest human resource managers, and some solutions to avoid similar mistakes 
  • How to tame the intermittent leave and reduced schedule beasts, and put a stop to abuse and fraud 
  • How FMLA, ADA, and workers’ comp laws overlap, so you can avoid violations 
  • And more!

 

"When an employer routinely disregards the FMLA rights of its workers, whole families can be harmed. We will continue to use all enforcement tools at our disposal to uphold FMLA protections for workers and make sure that all employers operate in compliance with the law."

– Wayne Kotowski, Wage & Hour Division, U.S. Department of Justice
