This training program will describe the patterns that may indicate FMLA abuse, and how to respond to them. It will also define five key steps to an effective FMLA investigation and offer best practices companies can use to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of FMLA abuse.
When FMLA became law in 1993, it was intended to provide protection for employees who really needed it. Unfortunately, through the years, employees have figured out how to work FMLA and exploit the system.
Though the law may seem more lenient towards employees, it still allows employers with the tools and guidelines to effectively combat FMLA abuse.
This webinar will help leaders uncover FMLA abuse, and what needs to be done to address it. Participants will learn to investigate FMLA abuse, and how to respond if and when there is a case of abuse.
