Product Description

An indispensible guide to respecting employees' rights and protecting your business interests. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a law with a noble purpose: To help employees balance the demands of work and family. But the FMLA can be difficult to apply in the real world, especially when other laws -- such as workers’ comp statutes or state leave laws -- also come into play. Any misstep can create needless frustration for both managers and employees.

Fortunately, The Essential Guide to Family & Medical Leave provides all the information and forms you need to comply with the FMLA. It answers vital questions, such as:

What are a company’s obligations to an employee on leave?
