Webinar: FMLA Pitfalls & How to Avoid Them

Steven J. Luckner

This webinar will guide employers through everything they need to know about how to comply with the FMLA's technical requirements; how to avoid common mistakes during the FMLA leave process and ensure its smooth management; and what to do when it has been mismanaged.

Employers continue to face difficulties complying with the FMLA's technical requirements, as well as administration of leaves and issues of employee abuse. Failure to fulfill any of the FMLA's complex requirements, such as improper leave designations or terminating an employee after leave, even if justified, can generate lawsuits, damage an employer's reputation and costs tens of thousands of dollars in litigation costs and potential damages.

Watch Steven Luckner, labor and employment partner at Ogletree Deakins, discuss:

  • Key insights on the most vulnerable areas for employers and how to address them.
  • Practical examples of specific situations where employers regularly fail to meet their FMLA obligations.
  • Tools and best practices which HR can implement to ensure full compliance with the FMLA's technical requirements - so that the administration of FMLA leave runs smoothly for both the employer and employee, while reducing exposure to potential violations and abuse by employees.
