Often enough, HR professionals and attorneys ask me to suggest an FMLA seminar that would help them develop skills to effectively administer the FMLA and/or counsel their clients in this area. Although several seminars are quite good (not to mention those put on by Bill and me, right?), there are few programs that top those sponsored by the National Employment Law Institute (NELI). Each spring, NELI hosts a two-day ADA/FMLA seminar (in several U.S. cities) that truly is excellent in all respects.
For the very first time in its history, however, NELI is hosting a workshop dedicated exclusively to the FMLA. (Can you hear the explosion of cheers in the background? Seriously!) Starting on June 2 in Chicago, NELI will host a Family and Medical Leave Act Workshop (pdf) that will update attendees on FMLA workplace developments, including significant court cases and the DOL’s latest regulations. Geared toward attorneys and HR professionals, the seminar will be held in various cities throughout June 2011.
I am delighted to be presenting at NELI’s June 2 FMLA Workshop in Chicago along with Program Chair Ellen McLaughlin (Seyfarth Shaw) and Sanders Lowery (Aon Corporation). Register for the seminar here.
