This webinar 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.
You may already know that the FMLA, the ADA and Workers' Comp might all allow your employees time off to care for their own (or a family member's) medical condition. You may even understand how and when they might overlap. If so, 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. You can curb employee leave abuse. Don't despair! This webinar will show you how to do it?
