Wages, Leave, And Disability: Stay Compliant Under FMLA, USERRA, And Other Protected Leaves

Webinar: ID# 1036604
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Understanding and managing employee leave, and the benefits or wages that may coincide with the leave, can be a challenge for the most seasoned HR professional.

The Department of Labor recently issued opinion letters on the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) which may be helpful but also may initiate reviewing or revising an employer's policies. Sometimes deconstructing what the government requires of employers under FMLA and other leave can be mind-boggling.

Employees may take time off, sick time, or other absences that were agreed upon with the employer, and some time off is related to federally protected leave laws under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), state workers' compensation laws, the Uniformed Security Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), or FMLA. Occasionally, employers are required to provide pay for some employee leave time. The USERRA, like other leaves, does not require that employees are paid for their time off doing military service, but some state laws could dictate a certain amount of paid time off.

Other considerations are involved as well: Does the employee on leave have exempt or non-exempt status? What is "qualifying exigency" leave? How does FMLA intersect with various other types of leave? Can an employee's accrued time off be used to extend the 12 weeks of FMLA leave? How much of this time off must be paid under FLSA standards?

Attend our in-depth webinar with a skilled employment attorney and learn the answers to these and other questions regarding wages and leave.What You'll Learn:
  • Recognize what's covered by FMLA, how long employees may take, and what you may be required to do for FMLA leave
  • Determine what type of leave applies-whether disability, parental leave, or USERRA, and how to manage that leave
  • Revise policies related to using accrued paid leave while saving FMLA unpaid leave (12 weeks)
  • Determine whether employees are eligible for family leave, including accommodations for a sick relative
  • And much more!
