The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a 1993 law that allows qualified employees to leave for up to 12 weeks per year for qualifying medical conditions, to care for seriously ill family members and to expand their families. Whether an employee asks to leave under this program or not, all employees who qualify for FMLA leave must be granted it correctly.
HR professionals, managers and other professionals may require FMLA training courses to learn how to spot FMLA leave requests and eligible employees and to learn how to administer these programs successfully.

How FMLA Works at Your Organization
FMLA leave compliance is complex because there are so many rules to follow. Companies, managers and HR professionals need to learn how to recognize eligible employees and FMLA requests. After a leave is over, they must be able to offer the returning employee an equivalent position or the same position as the pre-leave job. During the leave, health benefits and other benefits need to continue to be offered to the employee.
FMLA leave also needs to be administered correctly for the right reasons. Qualified employees are eligible for FMLA leave if they need to take care of a child due to foster care, birth or adoption. Both men and women can take this type of leave for adoption or birth. In addition, qualified employees can take FMLA leave to care for a parent, spouse or child who has a serious health condition. FMLA leave training can help you understand which serious health conditions qualify. FMLA leave regulations further allow employees to take leave for their own serious medical conditions. FMLA leave training allows you to determine which conditions are eligible for this type of leave.
