Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) compliance is critical for businesses. Employers covered under the FMLA are required to comply with the law, which requires them to provide eligible employees with up to twelve weeks of job-protected leave under a few specific circumstances, including their own serious health condition or to care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition.
Employers must know how ‘Serious Health Condition’ is defined under the FMLA, and must provide Family Medical Leave (FML) accordingly. Join expert speaker, Mary White, in this live webinar to get clarity on the circumstances under which non-chronic illnesses expected to have relatively short durations meet the definition of a Serious Health Condition, and would therefore obligate employers to provide eligible employees with family medical leave in a manner consistent with the law.
The concept of ‘Serious Health Condition’ is very specifically defined for FMLA purposes; clear guidance has been issued that verifies non-chronic illnesses expected to be of short-term duration (such as influenza, RSV, etc.), can – under specific circumstances – meet the definition of serious health condition. Mary will assist you in determining when these types of conditions meet the requirement for ‘Serious Health Condition’ for FMLA purposes is one of several critical areas of FMLA compliance, and that is the aspect this webinar will focus on.
Note: This is not an all-encompassing FMLA workshop. It focuses specifically on non-chronic conditions.
