Franczek Radelet Webinar
December 5, 2013

Presentation Materials

FMLA Medical certification is designed to help employers better understand an employee's medical condition and their need for time off from work. So, why does such a helpful tool tend to create angst, confusion and frustration within the employer community?

In this complimentary webinar, Franczek Radelet attorney Jeff Nowak and Matt Morris, Vice President, FMLASource (ComPsych), cover FMLA medical certification in detail and employ case studies throughout to help employers deal with the most confusing and maddening medical certification conundrums.

Using real life situations from their own wealth of experience dealing with the FMLA, our presenters cover topics such as:

  • Common employer questions and missteps in the medical certification process
  • Best practices for employers when an employee fails to return medical certification
  • Incomplete or confusing certification - does the employer trash it and start over?
    Fighting the "Friday-Monday Leave Act"- how employers should use recertification when they see a pattern of misuse or suspect FMLA abuse
  • Managing the second/third opinion process
