Concurrent Session
Ugh! ANOTHER Intermittent FMLA Request
Tuesday 06/30/2020 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Add to calendar

Workplace Application:
Hard to assess and evaluate, intermittent FMLA requests don’t have to be the bane of HR practitioners. 

It seems like we receive an FMLA request almost every day. Continuous leaves are, generally, simple to deal with and very straight-forward; it's hard to "fake" appendicitis! Intermittent FMLA, on the other hand, can be a cringe-worthy event. This session is designed to help the HR practitioner avoid the "cringe" by reviewing the tools we have at our disposal to remain compliant AND minimize potential abuse of the system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to distinguish between the alphabet soup of leave programs.
  • Learn to stay compliant and effectively manage intermittent FMLA.
  • Ease your anxiety over intermittent requests.
  • Obtain a checklist for intermittent leave management.
