Event Details


Do California leave of absence laws sometimes seem confusing?

There are many layers to leaves that can cause confusion: determining the type of leave (medical or personal?), tracking and documenting leaves (leave letters, doctors’ notes), creating leave policies (and being consistent), and some leaves can even be taken at the same time (overlap leaves).

How do you manage leaves of absence in your organization? Why is it so important?  Ben Kennedy will be providing us with best practices and strategies for handling leaves in your workplace.  He will communicate what leaves are required by law, discuss different types of leaves provided by employers and review strategies for the most appropriate ways of handling employee leave of absence requests.

Doors Open & Catered Lunch @ 11:30am

Speaker Begins @ 12:00pm

Speaker Ends @ 1:30pm
