Developing a comfortable level managing the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) takes knowledge, skills and experience. In this 90 minute Webinar I will cover the knowledge and skills needed to get the level of comfort but most importantly, I will be sharing with you my own experience. At the end of the Webinar you will understand the FMLA law to assure legal compliance as well as to provide employees with the benefits and protections the law provides.


Since its enactment in 1993, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has served as the cornerstone of the Department of Labor’s efforts to promote work-life balance and we have worked in support of the principle that no worker should have to choose between the job they need and the family they love. With the FMLA, our country made it a priority to give workers the ability to balance the demands of work and family. It made the healthy development of babies, healthy families, and healthy workplaces a priority. It was a remarkable accomplishment at the time and, since its enactment, the FMLA has been used more than 100 million times to help workers balance the demands of the workplace with the needs of their families and their own health.
