HR Management & Compliance

Check Out the FMLA Training Scenarios Video Series!

Every HR professional knows that the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can be very, very tricky. With so many diverse situations that could apply and compliance hurdles around every turn (not to mention actually tracking the employee’s FMLA leave accurately), it can be a real personnel management headache. However, a new video training series can help!

These five FMLA training videos from BLR® examine scenarios with FMLA implications similar to what your supervisors or managers could face. Introduced by Managing Editor Steve Bruce, PhD, PHR, each dramatized situation is then analyzed by our FMLA expert, Senior Legal Editor Susan Schoenfeld, JD.

  • Scenario 2: Employee caring for a disabled nephew. Here, an employee has a situation where his disabled nephew—who lives with the employee—is sick and cannot take care of himself.
  • Scenario 3: Employee’s “cold case” and uncertain certification. In this scenario, an employee has a “common” cold that requires more than 3 consecutive days of bed rest and prescription medications. The employee fails to provide medical certification at first and then when she does, the manager suspects it may be a forgery.
