What are the New FMLA forms and what are the changes?

Now that the Department of Labor has issued new FMLA forms and the New Family First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) is in place it is critical for Employers and Leaders to be knowledgeable about the impact and the compliance consequences. Although there are many updates provided by many different resources, it is imperative that Employers and Leaders count on the experts to explain health resources and compliance experts to assist them with the regulations since they are happening and changing daily. 

The FFCRA was based on the FMLA with added amendments to accommodate the changes and resources for the COVID-19. It established paid sick leave under certain criteria and an expanded leave to accommodate employees who are unable to work due to school closures.

Moreover, as Employers mistakenly shut down training costs, they are doing a disservice to the company and to their employees. Research has proven that compliance training is the lowest cost/high-value risk management Strategy. Training Leaders have provided a huge resource on how companies can prepare for the transition during and after the COVID-19 Pandemic.

When you add the complexities of other new mandatory regulations like leave/paid regulations, reasonable accommodation, and currently or soon to be legally effective, the possibility of FMLA overlapping with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), it can be a challenge for Employers, Leaders, and HR professionals.

This webinar by industry expert Margie Faulk, PHR, SHRM-CP, will provide all attendees the critical information needed to mitigate all the requirements to stay afloat and to communicate effectively to employees to ensure accurate information on health, safety, paid leave and other resources offered to survive this pandemic.

Let’s count on the HR and Compliance subject matter experts (SME) to provide the Employers and employees with the necessary communication needed.
