Conference Description:

Confusing regulations, along with numerous changes to the FMLA law, as well as, conflicting court decisions, cause FMLA to be one of the biggest compliance headaches for employers. A major FMLA frustration for employers is not knowing what to do when an employee appears to be abusing FMLA and fraudulently using approved leave for non-FMLA purposes. Many employers feel helpless.

It is crucial that employers identify and terminate FMLA abusers; however, employers must proceed with caution when dealing with FMLA abuse; as the cost of violating the law could be massive. For instance, a fired Chase Manhattan Regional Manager won a federal jury verdict of more than $2.2 million in an employment discrimination suit alleging violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Additionally, employees who abuse FMLA, create a negative impact on company productivity, cause problems with customer service and employee morale; as well as increased costs via administration, overtime, covering shifts, etc. Some employers experience as much as a 30% absenteeism rate on any given day due to FMLA abuse.
