HR professionals who manage family and medical leave know that leave laws are complex, which makes compliance difficult. So having sound policies and practices is critical.
“Whatever your policy is, make sure you’re consistent with it,” said Eric B. Meyer, an attorney with FisherBroyles in Philadelphia. He spoke during a June 25 mega session at the Society for Human Resource Management 2019 Annual Conference & Exposition.
Orielle Hope, a conference attendee with 12 years of HR experience, said she was looking to “get into the weeds” of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) compliance to ensure that her organization is doing things the right way and treating employees fairly. Hope is the director of talent arts at Arbor Acres Retirement Community in Winston-Salem, N.C.
