Training Overview

Update your Leave of Absence Policy. Collaborate with a lawyer to incorporate the latest regulations.

You need to revise your leave of absence policies. FMLA, ADA, and other employment laws and regulations have evolved since your last update. With a new FMLA decision and President Biden’s extended family leave proposal, the 2023 changes keep coming.

Fortunately, you can do this work collaboratively! We are offering three sessions to build your policies with a leading employment attorney.

Whether you need to start from scratch or make refinements to comply with the new mid-year requirements, you will come out of these interactive meetings with sound policies that you can implement immediately.
