The Family Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, is an important piece of legislation that can prove confusing for managers. Its purpose is to help families through particularly stressful times, including the birth of a child, military deployment, or illness. As a manager, you must be equipped to deal with FMLA requests should they arise. In order to prepare you for these very real scenarios, this course, part of the “TAKEAWAY” for Managers™ series, explores four key areas: the basics of the FMLA, the ins and outs of the FMLA, the FMLA and military families, as well as what retaliation is and why it is illegal.

The basics of the FMLA include who exactly can seek the 12 weeks of job-protected leave it guarantees. Of course, the FMLA has somewhat complicated eligibility requirements, including specifications on how long an individual has to work for a company, as well as how many employees the company must have. Learn these ins and outs, and more, through the information presented in this training lesson.

As a manager, it can be confusing to keep track of those who may be eligible to receive leave, as well as for which scenarios, health or otherwise, warrant granting leave. Utilize the materials provided and gain a better understanding of the Family Medical Leave Act, thus creating a more respectful, and compliant, workplace.
