    Join the Michigan Chamber on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 with attorneys Aaron Graves and Rebecca Seguin-Skrabucha from Bodman PLC as they discuss the Family and Medical Leave Act.

    Topics be to be discussed:

    • HR's responsibilities for ensuring that the employee is eligible and taking leave for an FMLA-qualifying reason.
    • The legal definition of a serious health condition and how to accurately apply this definition when approving FMLA leave.
    • The definitions of parent, spouse and child.
    • What you can and can’ do as it relates to medical certifications and recertifications.
    • How to handle intermittent and reduced schedule leave.
    • Addressing reinstatement (same or an equivalent job).
