Overview of the webinar

Part of any comprehensive HR audit is auditing your organization's Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) practices. While auditing FMLA is time-consuming, it is worth the investment of time. Because of the Department of Labor (DOL) investigates your FMLA practices and finds them lacking in compliance, your company could be on the hook for high-priced penalties

Why should you attend?

In defending regarding any compliance matter, a company's best defense lies in demonstrating it made “good-faith efforts” to comply with the law by establishing its practices and policies as prescribed by the relevant regulations. By conducting your own FMLA self-audit, an employer can correct problems before a DOL investigation or employee lawsuit arises. However, what should you be looking for? How do you get started? In addition, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA audit reveals problems?
