    In partnership with the Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, PCHRA invites you to join W&H's January Meeting titled:

    "Avoiding Common FMLA Compliance Infractions"

    ABOUT THE EVENT:  This is part of our PCHRA 2024 Wage and Hour Learning Series. We are partnering with the The Department of Labor Division of Wage and Hour to provide business owners and HR professionals an understanding of the 2024 changes in wage and hour laws impacting business. 

    For this event, participants can learn and earn 1 SHRM PDC.

    About the Presentation:  For over thirty years, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) has offered millions of workers protected leave to care for their families and tend to their own health.  Enacted in 1993, the FMLA entitles eligible employees of covered employees to take up to 12 workweeks of leave per year for qualifying family and medical 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 provide a comprehensive overview of the FMLA using real world examples to highlight common compliance concerns on topics such as determining employee eligibility requirements, qualifying reasons for leave, and rights and responsibilities under the Act.  We will also show you how to find the most up to date resources and information on the FMLA to help you stay in compliance.

    Learning Objectives:  Presentation attendees will be able to: 

    • Identify when employees have a potential qualifying need for family medical leave. 
    • Better understand FMLA common violations and how to avoid them. 
    • Readily find FMLA resources.
