Program Overview: Most employers embrace the objectives of the Family and Medical Leave Act -- to provide workers with the flexibility they need to attend to personal and family health issues when needed. However, the reality of the law presents a number of challenges. Who qualifies for FMLA leave? What is a qualifying medical or personal circumstance? Who makes the determination? How much -- or how little -- time can an employee take? What documentation should you require? How does the FMLA complement and contradict other employment statutes? Get the answers to these and other questions you need to know to ensure your company's FMLA practices are safe and legal.
