  • Webinar

Why Should You Attend:

If the Department of Labor (DOL) takes an interest in investigating your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices, watch out! Should they uncover systemic FMLA problems, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties.

The best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA self-audit and correcting any problems before a DOL investigation or employee lawsuit arises. But what should you be looking at? How do you get started? And, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA audit reveals problems?

This comprehensive webinar outlines how to conduct a thorough FMLA self-audit. Teri Morning will help you feel secure in your FMLA practices and endure possible DOL investigations as the agency steps up its renewed focus on enforcement.
