Hausmann-Johnson Insurance is hosting an FMLA seminar series consisting of Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced classes. Class descriptions and registrations are found below.
Complexity and frustration are two words our clients use when complying with Family and Medical Leave Acts. If you have felt the frustration of trying to understand the basics of FMLA or developing a program that works for your organization, perhaps we can help.
This session will discuss the basics of both the Federal and Wisconsin FMLA. We will review the areas where you have to make decisions as to how you are going to establish your policy. Examples showing consequences of different decisions – measurement year, substitution options, etc - will be provided to help you make informed decisions. Finally, you will be provided with a sample policy along with a variety of forms and resources to help you navigate and administer this important employee benefit.
Even if you have an FMLA policy in place, this session may help you:
- Have a more thorough understanding of the law and the areas in which you have options
- Be more comfortable with the conversations you have with employees regarding their rights, responsibilities, and benefits
- Understand your supervisor training obligations to better protect them from personal liability concerns
This interactive workshop will delve into solutions and responses to more complex issues often encountered by people who administer both the Federal and Wisconsin FMLA. We will review the areas where the employer can take action in reducing abuse (ie: initial review and challenging certifications, when to talk to the treating physician, investigations, etc.).
Whether you are new to FMLA or even if you have been administering it for many years, this session will help you:
- Have a more thorough understanding of the employer’s rights when abuse is suspected
- Handle situations in which the FMLA cert is not returned, incomplete, late, etc.
- Deal with the complexities of intermittent leave law and the areas in which you have options
- Conduct an investigation to determine if FMLA abuse has occurred
- Conduct a self-audit of your FMLA process
- Be aware of recent court cases and decisions in FMLA
Let’s talk about the interaction between FMLA and other laws – ADA, Work Comp, etc. Attorney Bob Gregg from Boardman & Clark LLC will present on some of the minefields we can walk into. He will also discuss any new court decisions related to FMLA and WFMLA that we need to be aware of.
