Among the most contested and litigated areas under the FMLA is the meaning of the key statutory term “serious health condition.” Those who may have a good working understanding of The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), still struggle with the scope of this somewhat vague term, and how to deal with the provisions of the statute in this area.

By the end of this audio conference, you will be able to identify with confidence how the Labor Department and courts have viewed the category of covered serious health conditions, and be able to grant or deny leave requests with greater confidence and a reduced fear of litigation. This audio conference will feature the premier national speaker on this issue, Peter Susser, author of Thompson’s Family and Medical Leave Handbook.

Learning Points:

* Define what is considered a Serious Health Condition under the FMLA
* Provide scenarios that will include common problems faced, and mistakes made by, employers in this area, and how to minimize exposure in this area
* How the requirements of the leave laws – ADA, FMLA, and workers’ comp – interact, including what constitutes covered conditions and how to manage paid leave vs. unpaid leave
* How to avoid assumptions in dealing with claims for FMLA leave, and the scope of the employer’s ability to challenge claims of coverage or eligibility based on a reported condition
* How the courts have applied the definition of covered Serious Health Conditions
