Clark Hill Attorney Jennifer Buckley to present at the American Society of Employer’s Employment Law Workshop September 12, 2013
Detroit, MI – Clark Hill Attorney Jennifer Buckley will present at the ASE Employment Law Workshop September 12, 2013 at the VistaTech Center at Schoolcraft College in Livonia, MI. Buckley’s presentation is “FMLA: How to Manage the Use and the Abuse”. Despite years of grappling with FMLA compliance, employers still struggle with how to manage FMLA leave, particularly intermittent leave. This workshop will give employers practical pointers on how to manage claims and challenge and reduce the abuse. You will learn about what you can do about those vague FMLA certifications that state that the leave is indefinite or unknown; you will learn what to do with the long weekend abuser. After attending her session, you will walk away with tools to deal with your FMLA challenges.
