This presentation will focus on common mistakes employers make when administering the FMLA and provide some guidance on how to avoid them. 

Relying upon the FMLA regulations, we will highlight ways employers can protect themselves from FMLA abuse while ensuring that those employees who need the FMLA are able to obtain it.
