Track: Employment Law & Legislation

In this interactive, high-level session (that assumes a working knowledge of the Act), you have the opportunity to apply your understanding of the FMLA to a series of unique, real-world scenarios, and learn how your decisions compare to those taken by other real-life HR departments.
