Honest Belief - Defending Your FMLA Decisions

Disability Management Employer Coalition [DMEC]

May 21, 2020
Recorded Online

As an employer, suspected abuse of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can present many challenges. Leave abuse can increase an employer’s costs and deplete resources, while also greatly decreasing employee productivity and morale. However, there are ways to effectively navigate the leave abuse landscape, especially considering the court’s support of the honest belief defense.

In this session, our experts will discuss scenarios where the honest belief defense has been effective in defending FMLA decisions. We will contrast these examples with highlights of areas where employers failed to make their case, and examine the differences. Attendees will leave with an understanding of what elements are critical to substantiate an honest belief defense.

Learning Objectives:

  • Examine cases in which the honest belief defense was effective in defending FMLA decisions.
  • Identify shortcomings in employer cases where the honest belief defense did not substantiate FMLA decisions.
  • Discover how to build an effective honest belief defense in the event of suspected leave abuse.
