Who should attend?
Front-Line Supervisors (and those in HR who work with them).
How is this program unique?
Other programs routinely offered to employers provide an in depth analysis of the FMLA to empower HR professionals to administer the act. This program will train front-line supervisors in what they need to do to keep themselves, and the company, out of trouble. The objective is to teach those supervisors – who likely have the most contact with employees – in what they should and should not do in working with HR to reduce the risk of liability under the FMLA. The aim is not to turn supervisors into HR professionals, but to enable them to understand when HR must be alerted to situations in the workplace that implicate the FMLA, while simultaneously not taking actions which can expose the company to liability.
