Agenda for FMLA Certifications & Calendar Essentials

  • The new forms! Ensure you are using correct FMLA forms and learn how to complete them in the most legally safe and time-efficient manner.
  • Calendar options. Which one is best? Review the choices available to employers for counting 12 months (calendar method and rolling method options) and decide which is best for your business.
  • Certification and notification. Understand when leave qualifies for FMLA qualification, when and how to notify employees, and how to manage the certification process.
  • Disagree with the certification? Learn when and why to request a second or third opinion; and what to do if they conflict.
  • Intermittent leave. Learn exactly how often you need to recertify intermittent leave, including intermittent paid FMLA leave for COVID-related reasons.
  • FMLA abuse. Find out what to do if you suspect a worker is abusing FMLA leave. Recertifying and verifying the employee is actually off work for the reasons they say.
  • Return-to-work. Determine which completed forms are necessary and your limits on requested information.
