FMLA in 2008: Complying with the New Changes – Audio Conference


When: Wednesday, March 12, 2008
1:00 – 2:15 p.m. ET
Cost: $197

How is your organization responding to the one-two FMLA punch that Washington just delivered? “Business as usual” isn’t the right answer.

Congress has voted to extend FMLA leave to certain military families. (Sounds simple? It’s not.) And the Bush administration proposed a dozen other changes to the FMLA that will affect your notice obligations, certification procedures and more.

Discover which of these changes are in effect now … which will be finalized later … and what your organization MUST do to comply. Join us for FMLA in 2008: Complying with the New Changes

This informative 75-minute interactive audio conference will show you:
  • How to comply with the new military-family leave law. It contains some surprises – and the US Labor Department is still tinkering with it.
  • Which new poster and notification requirements are needed to comply – and the proper language to revise your policies and handbooks.
  • Recent FMLA case law, and how it may impact YOUR operations.
  • What we know about the Labor Department’s new FMLA proposals – what we DON’T know – and what you should do now to prepare for them.
  • Whether you can talk directly to your employee’s doctor (the answer may shock you!) and other FMLA surprises.
As an added bonus, you’ll have the opportunity to pose your questions to an employment law attorney who specializes in FMLA compliance.  This valuable benefit is included at no additional charge.

For 15 years, complying with the FMLA was complex, but at least the law stayed the same. This year, that’s all changed. Don’t get caught off-guard with your boss asking, “Why didn’t we know about that?”  Register for FMLA in 2008: Complying with the New Changes TODAY!
