LE2002: FMLA Leave Rights and Responsibilities

In this presentation, McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorney Charlie Plumb discusses the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the rights it provides to employees to deal with their own health issues, and the health issues of their immediate family members as well.

  • Leave, benefits and return to work
  • Knowing when FMLA leave applies
