Since the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) was signed into law, employers have been faced with the challenge of ensuring compliance with the statute’s requirements while also developing strategies to prevent employees from taking unfair advantage of the system. Abuse can be difficult to identify and may be even more difficult to address. While most employees will not abuse these rights, many will. Those who abuse the system create many headaches for employers and causes morale problems among those who are not abusing the system.
The 90 minutes webinar will be conducted by expert Susan Fahey Desmond who is a principal with Jackson Lewis PC. She has been representing management in all areas of labor and employment law for over 30 years. A frequent author and speaker, Ms. Desmond is listed in Best Lawyers in America and has been named by Chambers USA as one of America’s leading business lawyers for labor and employment law.
