Why Should you Attend
When FMLA became law in 1993, it was intended to provide protection for employees who really needed it. Unfortunately, through the years, employees have figured out how to work FMLA and exploit the system.

Though the law may seem more lenient towards employees, it still allows employers with the tools and guidelines to effectively combat FMLA abuse.
