FMLA Final Regulations
The FMLA Final Regulations issued by the Department of Labor on November 17, 2008 became effective January 16, 2009.  The Amendments to the ADA were effective on January 1, 2009.  President Obama also signed the NDAA which made further revisions in the military leave benefits under the FMLA.  All  are a compliance nightmare for employers.  Learn How to Comply Today with this informative Webinar that will provide employers with knowledge of the revisions in the law and the regulations complete with a how-to implementation strategy. 
 
The FMLA Final Regulations are technical and legalistic.  Understand what a "qualifying exigency" really is.  Learn how to define a "covered servicemember" and what leave employers are required to provide.  Become informed about the changes required in medical certifications and the definitions of "serious health condition".
