If you manage employees’ requests for leave, you may need a generous helping of alphabet soup. That is not the A to Z of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), but a serving of the more challenging aspects that often cause management consternation in administering a law that can result in staffing issues, low morale, and perceptions (or reality) of abuse. Mitzi provides the right recipe for dealing with particularly prickly aspects of the FMLA such as intermittent and reduced schedule leave, leave for grandparents and adult children, the exhaustion of FML time, and the absence of the ADA’s “undue hardship” defense. Mitzi, who represents many CAAs, offers a practical, proactive approach to managing employees’ leave to avoid or limit legal pitfalls and minimize the operational challenges related to intermittent and reduced schedule leave.
