FMLA: Meeting the Challenge of Compliance and Cost
Date:7/9/2013

Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Every year the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and its mandates seem to become cloudier, more complex, and confusing; maintaining — and proving — compliance is costly. On average, successful “wrongful termination” lawsuits in breach of FMLA regulation result in damages that range from $87,500 to $450,000, according to the EEOC. Even in cases where the employer prevails, the cost to defending an FMLA lawsuit averages $78,000.

United Benefit Advisors (UBA), in conjunction with Reliance Standard Life Insurance Company, is hosting a free webinar, “FMLA: Meeting the Challenge of Compliance and Cost,” for HR professionals and business owners on July 18 at p.m. ET.

According to Reliance Standard’s research, effective FMLA management and early intervention can help save money and increase productivity from future disability claim activity.

Participants in this webinar will learn:

  • Defining and Understanding FMLA
  • FMLA Market Trends and Statistics
  • Common Challenges and Pitfalls
  • Tracking vs. Management
  • Employee Communication and Compliance
  • Industry Best Practices
  • Building a Business Case and
  • Understanding the Options

“More than half of all employers extend paid or unpaid FMLA to ineligible employees, and poor management and understanding of the law can result in financial losses year after year,” says Thom Mangan, CEO of UBA. “Employers who understand FMLA are in a better position to manage employee claims. But the leave laws are ever changing, making it critical for employers to have a good resource and a qualified advisor for current information and requirements.”

This webinar will address the most challenging aspects of FMLA, including:

  • record keeping/tracking use of leave
  • determining what constitutes a serious health condition
  • communication with health care providers
  • coordinating FMLA with Workers Compensation and short-term disability
