Why Should You Attend?

    If you attended our webinar on Employee Leave under FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation, then you now have a good understanding of how one or even all of these laws may apply to your employee’s request for a leave of absence.You are now ready to move on to an issue of great concern to many employers: employee leave abuse.

    Suppose one or more of your employees has taken a leave of absence, and your company or department is buckling under the added stress—and you suspect that one or more of those employees may be taking advantage, and may not really be in need of family or medical leave – or may even not be entitled to it – what can you do? You can curb employee leave abuse. But how do you do it?

    This webinar is the second in our series on employee leave, and it will help you get a working knowledge of how you can minimize your company’s exposure to employee abuse of family and medical leave – be it under the FMLA, ADA, or workers’ comp or other applicable family and medical leave laws.
