12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

So, you thought you and your HR staff knew everything about the Family and Medical Leave Act? New cases and administrative decisions have changed what you thought you knew. This webinar will cover practical questions arising under the new interpretations of FMLA, such as:

  • Who is a “parent” entitled to leave?
  • Who is a covered “child”?
  • What are the new military leave requirements?
  • When are “short term” impairments covered?
  • What does “caring for” really mean?
  • When does a “vacation” count as “leave”?
  • When do “call-in” requirements become “retaliation”?
  • How can we obtain and use medical certification/recertification?
  • How can we prove FMLA fraud?
  • What to do when FMLA overlaps ADA and Workers’ Compensation.

Lindquist & Vennum Employment Law Partner Nancy Vollertsen will answer these, and other pertinent questions about the FMLA to help prevent employers’ inadvertent violations.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
