Family and Medical Leave Act Workshop
July 11th - Advanced

In your district, do the employees responsible for the hands-on administration for absences, disability and FMLA really have the skills and knowledge they need? This summer ASBA staff attorney Kristen Garner will team up with Missy Duke, attorney with Cross Gunter Witherspoon and Galchus, for intensive instruction on the Family and Medical Leave Act for school district superintendents and other central office staff who handle this issue daily.


There will be two levels of courses availableBasics and Advanced. You may sign up for one or both, depending upon your prior working knowledge of FMLA. Attend for two consecutive days or split the training up if you’d like to attend both, but be sure to check your skill level before registering to ensure you start with the best course for you.

  1. FMLA Basics (July 10 & 24) assumes limited or incomplete knowledge, and will be a comprehensive overview of the law, the duties and responsibilities of the employer, and the rights of the employee of FMLA. There will be a strong emphasis on the interplay with sick or other leave, leave taken for childbirth and child bonding, and the employee’s right to job restoration.
  2. FMLA Advanced (July 11 & 25) takes up where FMLA Basics stops, and goes in depth with form completion, timelines, health insurance during FMLA, administrative responses, and fun, real-world scenarios.
