FMLA Basic/FMLA Advanced – September 20-21, 2018

Training Location: Arkansas School Boards Association
523 South Ringo Street
Little Rock, AR


Do you and your district employees responsible for the hands-on management and administration for absences, disability and FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) really understand the intricacies and requirements of the laws that apply? Do you/they have the skills and knowledge needed to keep from misinterpreting or unintentionally not comply with the law?

Once again 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.

This two-day workshop will be held September 20 and 21 in the ASBA training room at 523 South Ringo Street in Little Rock. Day One: Attendees will get a comprehensive overview of the law, cover 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. Day Two: The second day will take up where day one left off and go in-depth with form completion, timelines, health insurance during FMLA, administrative responses, and real-world practice scenarios.

Each day the training will begin at 10 a.m. and dismiss at 1 p.m. No meals are included. The cost is $150 per person through September 6, 2018, and $170 after September 6, 2018. Cancellation must be in writing to Cancellation requests received through September 13, 2018, will be refunded at 100 percent. Cancellation requests received after September 13, 2018, will be refunded at 50 percent. There will be no refunds for cancellations after September 19, 2018.

Registrants must attend both days.
