The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is intended to balance employee’s professional and personal lives by providing leave due to certain family and medical reasons. As a manager, it’s imperative for you to understand how the FMLA may impact the organization, your employees, and you. Due to the complexity of this law, this course is intended to familiarize participants with the basic provisions and requirements of the law, to provide steps for handling FMLA requests, and how to handle FMLA-related absences. This course will also provide participants with an understanding of situations in which the FMLA and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may intertwine.
