There are many sources of federal law entitling employees to leave for family, medical, disability, military service and other reasons. These statutes overlap in part but cover different employers and employees, and carry with them different entitlements. Understanding and administering the growing number of employee leave entitlements can be a daunting task for employers, who often look to outside counsel for guidance. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the sources of federal employee leave law, covered employees and qualifying circumstances, how leave can and should be incorporated into employer policies and handbooks, and tips for avoiding liability.
