Breakfast Briefing: Interactive Workshop: Intermittent Leave Under the FMLA, ADA, and Local Law
Cost: There is no cost to attend this event, however, registration is required and seating is limited.
Various federal and local laws, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, sometimes require employers to provide employees with intermittent leave, time off on an hourly or daily basis, and/or reduced work schedules for reasons such as the health condition of the employee or a family member, pregnancy, military service issues of a family member, and domestic violence issues. This often leads to confusion as to what the law requires, especially where several laws are simultaneously implicated, as well as disruption in the employer’s ability to conduct its business while navigating around employee absences.
In this interactive program, attendees will work through real-life scenarios and discuss how to handle situations including the following:
Application of employer policies, such as attendance policies;
Intermittent and extended leave;
Employer and employee notice and scheduling requirements;
Requiring certification in support of the request for intermittent leave, time off, or a reduced schedule; and
Handling suspected leave abuse.
We will briefly review the policies and regulations at the beginning of the program, then will begin the interactive workshop portion. To ensure you have the most recent developments at hand, we will provide handouts that include guidance to be applied to the various scenarios.
