FMLA Workshop helps you implement complex employment law

The state and federal Family and Medical Leave Act, taken together, are two of the most complex employment laws to implement on a practical basis. If your credit union has 50 or more employees or is approaching this threshold, don't miss this important workshop Dec. 4.

The workshop will address:



Jo Whiting, Executive VP and Chief Advocacy Officer for The League, and H.R. consultant to credit unions
  • how much leave an employee really gets

  • what you can tell others about an employee's extended absence


  • what you can do  when you think someone  is abusing a leave; and


  • what to do if the person whose leave is expiring still can't come back to work.


You'll work through a model policy, review recent rulings and guidance from state and federal agencies and courts, and learn from peers how they've dealt with these issues with real-life scenarios.

"This training is designed to be reality-based and practical-not just 'here's the law,' but 'here's how to apply it in a real workplace,'" said presenter Joanne Whiting, Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy Officer for The League and H.R. consultant to credit unions.


Having practiced management-side employment law in private practice as an attorney and worked with employers for more than 20 years, Jo has extensive knowledge about how the FMLA affects credit unions. She has spoken about compliance at seminars and training sessions for employers, their employees, credit unions, CUNA and state leagues.
