How to Manage Employee Leave Requests and Control Absence Abuse


Meeting Description:

An employee approaches you to request time away from work. During the conversation, he or she mentions that it’s related to a medical issue. Do you know what to do next?

 

Handling employee leave requests related to medical or family issues can be tricky. First, you need a working knowledge of the various laws governing employee leave, including federal laws (FMLA, USERRA, ADA) and an ever-growing list of state and local laws. Then, you need a roadmap for evaluating the request to determine which laws apply. Finally, you need to know how to manage the day-to-day absences from day one until the granted leave is complete.

 

This free webinar will address your biggest concerns and put you on firm footing. You will be guided through the primary laws that come into play with employee leave. We’ll also share practical, hands-on tactics for fielding a leave request, managing the time off and, most important, preventing abuse.

 

Specifically, you’ll learn more about:

 

 

  • The typical scenarios that qualify for employee leave
  • The definition of a “serious health condition” under the FMLA
  • What to do when the FMLA and ADA overlap
  • The red flags of leave abuse, and when to intervene
  • How to manage FMLA requests, including intermittent and long-term leave
  • Necessary notice and certification documentation for compliance
