FMLA Self-Audits – Find and Fix Your Leave Practice Problems Before the Feds Do

If the Department of Labor (DOL) decides to inspect your organization’s Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices and should they uncover systemic FMLA problems, beware! Your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties. Before an employee lawsuit or a DOL investigation arises, the best defense lies in conducting your own FMLA self-audit and correcting any problems. But How do you get started? what should you be looking at? And, above all, what should you do if your FMLA audit reveals problems? This FMLA Self-Audit webinar will help you conduct a thorough review. Our Presenter will help you feel secure in your FMLA practices and undergo possible DOL investigations as the agency steps up its renewed focus on enforcement.
