Shareholders Grant Waterkotte and Andrew Chung Presenting FMLA Master Class on February 25

Pettit Kohn Ingrassia Lutz & Dolin Shareholders Grant D. Waterkotte and Andrew I. Chung will partner with Business and Legal Resources, Inc. (BLR) to present “2020 FMLA Master Class: Arizona – Advanced Skills for Employee Management.” The full day seminar on Tuesday 2/25 in Phoenix, Arizona will teach attendees how to apply essential Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) compliance principles.

Employee leave management presents increasingly complex challenges for HR professionals, who must navigate through a multitude of Department of Labor regulations as well as new federal court rulings on FMLA. Mr. Waterkotte and Mr. Chung, experienced employment and labor law attorneys, will delve into real-life leaves of absence challenges and situations that arise in the workplace. Topics covered include new and existing FMLA regulations, the latest FMLA-related court rulings, and issues involving medical certifications, intermittent and reduced schedule leave, and the intersection of FMLA with other laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and state workers’ compensation law.

This program has been pre-approved for 6.25 HR Certification Institute (HRCI) credits. Business & Legal Resources is also recognized by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) to offer Professional Development Credits (PDC’s). Registration and more information on the class is available on BLR’s website:
