Are you compliant with the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)? The US Department of Labor recently announced their renewed focus on conducting on site FMLA compliance investigations. The DOL’s stated intent is two-fold: (1) to increase its investigators’ access to information; and (2) save time by reviewing the employer’s documents and interviewing employees on-site.
According to this article from Lexology, the best advice for employers is, with the assistance of outside counsel, conduct a comprehensive audit of your company’s FMLA practices and procedures so that you will be ready when the DOL knocks on your door.
