This presentation will provide guidance to employers when dealing with their more difficult FMLA and Wisconsin FMLA (WFMLA) issues including conjunction with the ADA, Work Comp, WFEA, etc. 

Even if you are a seasoned FMLA administration professional, this course will expand your knowledge through  discussion of:   

  • What's new and scary: Recent FMLA cases

  • Dueling doctors: Difference of opinion between 2nd and 3rd evaluations

  • Sporadic call-ins: Intermittent FMLA leave and re-certification considerations

  • Complex web of laws: FMLA/ADA/WC, light duty perils, FLSA, and salary base rules on FMLA

  • Employees in other states: The interplay between differing state leave laws and the federal FMLA (one size   does not fit all!)

  • Suspicion of falsification: What should you do?

  • Quick answers on some not so simple issues: Including attendance bonuses, leave related to caring for children with special needs, and FMLA certification for non-pregnant parents

  • General Q & A

We are excited to welcome Bob Gregg and Brenda McLaughlin of Boardman Clark Law Offices to join us in presenting this program.
