The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, as amended (“FMLA”) is an important federal law entitling certain workers to job-protected leave for qualifying family and medical circumstances. The FMLA was enacted to promote work-life balance and to advance the interests of employees needing a leave of absence due to certain family and medical circumstances. Covered Employers must not only be aware of the duty to provide FMLA leave to eligible employees, but also the numerous other related statutory requirements and obligations such as, notice requirements, certification processes, eligibility determination methodologies, reporting and record-keeping, job restoration and other duties ancillary to the grant of FMLA leave. Likewise, Eligible Employees are challenged to understand particular individual rights, scope of benefit entitlements and employee reporting duties under the FMLA. This course will provide a nuts–and-bolts analysis of the key FMLA provisions, as well as a discussion of common issues giving rise to litigation and practice pointers.
