1 to 2 pm – “Nuts & Bolts of FMLA”

This presentation will examine the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).  Enacted in 1993, the FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.  Under the FMLA, eligible employees of covered employees may take up to 12 workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for qualifying reasons and up to 26 workweeks of military caregiver leave during a single 12-month period.  Employees who use FMLA leave have the right to go back to work at their same job or to an equivalent job that has the same pay, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment at the end of their FMLA leave.  This presentation will review which employers are covered under the FMLA, employee eligibility requirements, qualifying reasons for leave, and employee benefits and protections.
