Webinar: Common FMLA Mistakes on Intermittent Leave and How to Avoid Them

Steven Luckner

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) remains one of the more confounding areas affecting employers today, so much so that it is sometimes referred to as part of the Bermuda Triangle of employment law. So what steps does an employer need to take to steer clear of potential liability?

In this engaging 60-minute webinar, Ogletree Deakins employment attorney Steven Luckner runs through the challenges organizations face in administering employee request for intermittent or reduced schedule leave and the most common mistakes that he sees. In addition, he discusses concrete solutions that employers can put into practice.

"Oftentimes employers have a difficult time grasping that the 12 weeks is not the be all and end all to employee leave," says Luckner. For instance, reasonable accommodations issues may still arise under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that organizations cannot afford to ignore.

Luckner speaks frequently on a host of FMLA-related topics, as well as other trending employment law areas, and regularly advises employers on these issues.
