It has been 25 years since Congress enacted the Family and Medical Leave Act. How has the law evolved during that time? What are the most significant court rulings that have benefitted employees? What does every employment law practitioner need to know about the law to most effectively represent employees? What else is needed to give the law more teeth? These are some of the topics that our panel will discuss in this overview of the FMLA in its silver anniversary year. The panel will also provide tips on how to take advantage of the most common mistakes that employers make that can lead to FMLA claims.
