Webinar Wednesday – BRAND NEW – FMLA Medical Certification: How to Administer Leave, Minimize Abuse and Prevent Lawsuits

When an employee has a serious health condition and requests leave, the last thing you want to do is be insensitive. But most managers and HR professionals know that FMLA-protected leave needs a solid paper trail so that both you and your employee know what’s expected.

Medical certification is key to this trail … particularly if, at any point, you begin to suspect abuse or fraud. But myriad questions surround this one critical document—from when it’s due to what to do if it’s vague or incomplete.

This one-hour Webinar answers your questions so your documentation will be indisputable. 

Compliance with the FMLA is complicated. To stay out of hot water, you must understand the intricacies of the law and be aware of the tools designed to help you prevent misuse. Sign up for a new one-hour Webinar that covers it all and helps you feel confident that you’re administering FMLA leave fairly and legally.

Sample points from this must-attend HR and FMLA event:

  • Understand and follow the FMLA medical certification process
  • When to request a medical certification and a second or third opinion
