If you attended our webinar on Employee leave under FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation, then you now have a good understanding of how one or even all of these laws may apply to your employee’s request for a leave of absence. You are now ready to move on to an issue of great concern to many employers: Employee Leave Abuse. 
Suppose one or more of your employees has taken a leave of absence, and your company or department is buckling under the added stress—and you suspect that one or more of those employees may be taking advantage, and may not really be in need of family or medical leave – or may even not be entitled to it. You can curb employee leave abuse. But how do you do it? Don’t despair!
This webinar is the second in our series on employee leave, and it will help you get a working knowledge of how you can minimize your company’s exposure to employee abuse of family and medical leave – be it under the FMLA, ADA, or workers’ comp or other applicable family and medical leave laws.
The overlapping and seemingly contradicting provisions of FMLA, ADA, workers’ comp and state family medical leave provisions can confuse and trip up even the most well-intentioned, sophisticated employers. This webinar will help you untangle that web and be on your way to effectively managing employee leave.
While there is no magic bullet for combating employee leave abuse, knowledge of rules and regulations – and case law and proper controls can help greatly. In this webinar, and its follow-up (insert title here) you will learn effective strategies to ensure that only those employees who truly need –and are eligible for leave under FMLA, ADA, workers comp or other applicable leave laws—are the ones using it.
