    Family, Medical, and Other Protected Leave (FMLA) Training

    The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and comparable state and local laws require employers to provide family, medical or other types of protected leave to employees in some situations. Employers face an increasing number of lawsuits for failing to comply with these requirements.

    While employees cannot be expected to become experts in the nuances of these laws, they must know enough to be able to spot issues and seek guidance from HR. Managers, in particular, must fully understand the steps they must take to comply.
