The FMLA continues to be one of the more confusing employment laws.  This is one of the reasons employers make so many mistakes when administering the law.  Even many plaintiffs’ attorneys don’t know the nuances of the FMLA.  In this webinar, we will discuss the following ten common questions employers and HR professionals ask:

1. Should we count time off for a work-related injury as FMLA?
2. Can the mother of a grown child take off when her grandchild is being born?
3. Should we allow an employee to work from home while on FMLA leave?
4. What happens if an employee has two babies in one year?
5. What is the best way to count the 12-month period:  Rolling or Calendar?
6. If we give people time off anyway, why do we need to bother with the FMLA paperwork?
7. How do I calculate intermittent leave for an exempt employee?
8. How do I know someone’s aunt is an “in locus parentis?”
9. Why should I tell someone they are a “key” employee?
10. What is the “same or equivalent” job?
