K-12 Schools and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT$189
“Complying with the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is difficult in the best of circumstances, but it gets even more complicated for K-12 schools. The FMLA has special rules that apply only to educators in grades K-12, including requirements to combine paid and unpaid time when calculating the “minimum-hours-worked” eligibility requirements for “exempt teachers.” There are also special rules concerning elementary and secondary schools, both public and private.”
