Employees today are more educated than ever before about their leave rights, and as a result, are better able to take advantage of these rights. One particular area of concern involves the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which is one of the most complex, dynamic and employee-friendly employment laws. Intermittent and reduced scheduled leave under the FMLA are frequent challenge areas, as it's not uncommon for managers to receive higher volumes of intermittent FMLA leave requests at the end of the work day or week and around a holiday. As such, it can be difficult for HR professionals to identify patterns of potential abuse and respond accordingly.

During this session, Paul Kramer, director of Compliance for WorkForce Software, will share insight into the essential steps that employers can take to curb leave abuse. Attendees will learn how to identify potential signs that an employee is abusing leave entitlements, enhance their understanding of the impact of leave on operational effectiveness and learn the best practices for making fair, consistent and compliant determinations.

Attendees of the 2014 DMEC FMLA/ADAAA Employer Compliance Conference who wish to learn how they can mitigate instances of FMLA leave abuse are encouraged to attend this session. Additional information about the conference, including registration details, can be accessed at:
