FMLA Compliance

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is probably the most difficult, complex and frustrating regulation that most employers deal with – and the risk of an erroneous decision is substantial. Whether dealing with questions of eligibility, confusing medical certifications or requests for intermittent leave, one wrong decision can result in costly litigation.

We represent clients regarding all aspects of FMLA compliance, including:

  • Policy development and implementation: The FMLA regulations require employers to have written FMLA policies and procedures. It is imperative that they are prepared and implemented in a manner that ensures not only compliance, but also employee understanding and the employer's ability to administer the program.
  • Compliance: If you are subject to the FMLA, you will have questions concerning compliance with the array of complicated regulations that govern everything under the policy. Our attorneys can assist you in sorting through and understanding them.
  • Disputes: In addition to the advice and counsel we provide regarding FMLA compliance, our attorneys zealously defend clients facing lawsuits and enforcement actions alleging interference with FMLA rights or other violations. Through negotiation and litigation, we provide effective, efficient and favorable solutions for our clients.
