Employment Breakfast - Administering the Family Medical Leave Act
8:00 AM – 9:15 AM
Pierce Atwood LLP
Merrill's Wharf 254 Commercial Street Portland, Maine 04101
Join Meg LePage and Michelle Bush for a refresher on the basics of FMLA and recent regulatory and judicial developments, capping the hour with advice on employer best practices. We’ll talk about administering leave with reduced legal risk, managing employees who are abusing the protections of the FMLA and coordinating FMLA leaves with the broader obligations of the ADA’s requirement to provide reasonable accommodation.
