FMLA Intermittent Leave: Compliance Workshop

In this 75-minute interactive online training, you will learn how to:

  • Answer any questions about leave.

    One wrong employee-leave decision can trigger a career-crushing lawsuit.

  • Avoid intermittent FMLA mistakes.

    Managing those small bites of leave is the hardest part of the FMLA.

  • Understand your new pandemic obligations.

    COVID has complicated your compliance; learn how to make all the right moves.

“Intermittent leave is the single most serious area of friction between employers and employees seeking to use FMLA leave." – U.S. Department of Labor

Some of HR’s most thorny, legally risky situations involve employees’ use (and abuse) of FMLA leave taken in small bites. The amount of detail and timing necessary to administer these leaves can confuse even the most seasoned HR professionals. And because employees are becoming well versed in the FMLA game, your organization is paying the price. It’s up to you to know the law—and your CEO will expect it.

On Wednesday, December 14, find out how to prevent and correct FMLA compliance problems and effectively manage all types of FMLA intermittent leave issues, including complex leave issues created by COVID sickness as well as long-term care and family leave.

Our promise: By the end of this webinar, you will feel much more comfortable and confident managing the FMLA in your workplace.

Agenda for FMLA Intermittent Leave

  • Confidently handle every intermittent FMLA question thrown at you.
  • Correctly use the tools of compliance to address unscheduled and intermittent leaves (certifications, call-in rules, attendance procedures and more).
  • Manage the practical FMLA intermittent issues, not just the legal ones.
  • Leverage your follow-up powers. Know when you can contact an employee’s doctor about the need for leave … and request a second opinion.
  • Understand pandemic compliance. Are COVID-positive workers eligible for FMLA? What about to care for positive or exposed family members?
  • Comply with vaccine-leave requirements. The vaccine, isolation and mandate issues related to FMLA are confusing and legally risky—we’ll clarify it all.
  • Learn lessons from recent court rulings. They lay out a path for the best (and worst) steps to complying with intermittent-leave laws.
  • Understand "real-world" FMLA scenarios. We'll explain how to manage the real-world situations you face daily in administration of FMLA intermittent leaves, and how to avoid other potential legal pitfalls associated with leave (such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and workers’ compensation).
  • Identify the key questions you should be asking each and every time an employee seeks leave.

Managing FMLA Intermittent Leave

Employees with chronic health problems often take FMLA leave in short increments of an hour or less. That can cause a productivity, scheduling and cost predicament, especially in time-sensitive industries like health care, public safety, and transportation. In light of the revised FMLA regulations, make sure your organization’s policies and employee handbook are up to date, and revisit how you track FMLA intermittent leave.
