The Evolution of Leave Laws:

Managing FMLA, FFCRA and Paid Leave

In this 75-minute workshop, you’ll take a deep dive into

employee leave and learn:

  • What to do when coverage runs out.

    Get a clear handle on what your options are for providing leave when FFCRA expires or your employee requires continued leave.

  • The correct (and compliant) ways to administer leave.

    Take a deep dive into documentation, tracking and eventual return to work.

  • What’s ahead for leave and how to prepare now.

    Respond and plan now to the likelihood of leave laws changing.

Employee leave changes are not slowing down.

Stay on track with expert guidance.

Employee leave has seen a swift and complicated change this year in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The FFCRA - the first-ever nationwide federal paid leave law - became a reality. Employees used unpaid FMLA more than ever. And the pandemic shows signs of acceleration.

As the sun sets on FFCRA while a new administration prepares to enter the White House, a lot of “what if’s” are rising, all while employers face a variety of on-going challenges … from determining eligibility to having to fire staff who are on some form of leave.

Take 75 minutes on December 17 to sit down with employment lawyer Anniken Davenport and get focused guidance on what to do in the weeks and months ahead to support your staff and protect your company through the ever-changing landscape of employee leave.

Agenda for Evolution of Leave Laws

  • What happens when FFCRA expires? Even if Congressional inaction allows the FFCRA expire, employees will continue to need leave. And they will use existing FMLA leave including intermittent leave.
  • Will permanent and expansive national paid leave happen? It’s never been more likely. We will explain why.
  • How to prepare for the expected explosion of FMLA leave requests. The pandemic hasn’t stopped, and leave requests will continue to surge along with it. Get a clear understanding of eligibility, coverage and different regulations. Understand which applies when, and how to use them together.
  • Managing intermittent leave and FMLA schedules. This has never been more important! Identify, evaluate and resolve issues related to administering intermittent FMLA leaves.
  • Meeting the needs of the mental health catastrophe that’s brewing. Millions are reporting newly diagnosed mental health disorders triggered by isolation, job instability and family crises. Get a strategy on how to support employees with leave options.
  • The legal way to terminate on FMLA. Get the proper steps on how to do it without risking a no-win lawsuit … even if the employee is out on FMLA leave, asked for leave or just returned to work.
