The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires covered employers to provide eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for certain family and medical issues. This course helps managers avoid common missteps by outlining special duties and responsibilities under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and enables managers to be responsive to the needs of employees and their families while at the same time controlling costs, reduce legal liability and minimize workplace disruptions.

Employees also have some specific responsibilities. The employee version of this course educates employees about their role and helps ensure that they are notified of their rights and that organizations are better positioned to properly manage all requests.
