The Master Class will cover the latest developments in FMLA/CFRA administration, including: 

  • The key differences between FMLA and CFRA -- and how to make sure you're in compliance with CFRA's more stringent, employee-friendly requirements.
  • The details of the latest expansions to both FMLA and CFRA, so you don't risk noncompliance.
  • What recent FMLA and CFRA court decisions really mean, so you can adjust your policies accordingly.
  • Why leave-related recordkeeping continues to trip up even the savviest HR professionals, and effective solutions to avoid similar mistakes.
  • How to tame the intermittent leave and reduced schedule beasts, and put a stop to abuse and fraud.
  • How FMLA/CFRA, ADA/FEHA, and the California workers' comp laws overlap -- and which rules to apply in what order.
  • What to expect when an employee's expecting, so you can balance your business needs with her personal requirements, all within the spirit and letter of both state and federal law.
  • How to evaluate a "serious health condition" the way a real judge would, and eliminate disputes about what does and doesn't qualify.
