About This Course:
Medical certifications are used to help HR evaluate whether leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) must be granted and for how long. They are also useful for helping employers combat FMLA/CFRA abuse and fraud.

But, especially in California, employers are faced with many compliance questions. For instance:
  • May an employer use the Department of Labor’s model FMLA forms for certification of the serious health condition of an employee or family member?
  • Is it permissible to request a second opinion if the employer has reason to doubt the validity of a medical certification for the serious health condition of an employee’s covered family member?
  • May employers have an attendance policy that requires employees to submit a doctor’s note if they are sick for more than 3 consecutive days?
  • May an employer request a recertification of a medical condition every six months in connection with an absence by the employee?
  • May an employer request a second opinion if the employer has reason to doubt the validity on a fitness-for-duty certification?
And, these just a few of the questions California employers have!

Unfortunately, there are many common ways companies continuously misuse medical certifications or the information gleaned from them.

So, how can you be sure that your medical certification requests and requests for clarification due to ambiguous, missing, or contradictory medical information are being made in compliance with the voluminous federal and state regulations that govern FMLA/CFRA administration?

Unravel these regulations and get clear guidance at our webinar when an experienced California-based employment attorney will explain the compliance tripwires to avoid when requesting medical certifications, determining whether to grant FMLA/CFRA leave based on what the medical certification says—or doesn’t say, and more.What You'll Learn:
