Title:

Are Your Employees Working The System?: Learn How To Recognize, Combat, And Prevent FMLA/CFRA Abuse

SKU:WT-1001393
Format: Webinar
Description:

You have an employee on intermittent FMLA/CFRA leave who also seems to have come down with a case of Monday- or Friday-itis. Oddly enough, he's regularly "sick" and on Mondays, Fridays, and days before and after major holidays.

Is it just coincidence or is it FMLA/CFRA abuse? If it is abuse, can you prove it? Can you put a stop to it while simultaneously protecting yourself from costly, ugly retaliation lawsuits?

Courts are regularly deciding cases involving FMLA abuse. No employer should be afraid to hold employees accountable for their actions for fear of legal entanglements. FMLA and CFRA rules and regulations provide substantive guidance on the steps employers can legally take to curb abuse.

The right to thwart FMLA/CFRA abuse doesn't come without risks. It's important to walk the legal line carefully when investigating potential claims of abuse and disciplining employees appropriately; otherwise, there's a good chance you could run the risk of sparking interference or retaliation claims.

  • How far you can go to catch a FMLA/CFRA abuser in the act-and what you need to consider before having an employee tailed
  • How to lawfully disqualify employees on leave from certain bonuses as a way to combat abuse
  • How to prevent retaliation or leave interference claims when investigating FMLA/CFRA abuse
