A tumultuous labor market and changes in the way people work now – over remote networks, for joint employers, and as contractors, among other trends – confront employers with a range of new leave issues under the FMLA. In addition, a stressed workforce also gives rise to more difficult leave requests, including to deal with alcohol and drug abuse, and retaliation claims related to requests for leave. These trends, and the ongoing interpretation by the courts of recent amendments to the FMLA, put employers in the unenviable position of managing a changing workforce in the context of a new legal landscape for leave. This program will provide you with a practical guide to developments under the FMLA, areas of new liability, and techniques to reduce risk expose for employers.
