Training Overview

Who will request FMLA leave before the end of the year? Discover the process and forms you must use.

As the end of the year approaches, more employees will request family and medical leave that takes them away from work into 2023. The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is an employee-friendly law whose use became commonplace through the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to catch employers off-guard.

Department of Labor regulations specify employer requirements for FMLA communications, education, and notification. In addition, medical certifications have defined timeframes and administration requirements.

You and your management team must understand the current FMLA process, forms, and protections to help employees care for themselves and their families. It is critical to follow the rules to avoid lawsuits and government complaints filed against your organization.
