J. J. Keller Unveils New FMLA Training Program for Supervisors

FMLA for Supervisors

Neenah, WI — Now, with help from a new training program from J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc.®, organizations can educate their supervisors about what to expect and how to conduct themselves when handling Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) issues in the workplace.

FMLA For Supervisors uses real-world examples to teach supervisors appropriate responses to employee requests for time off due to circumstances such as: birth or adoption of a child, military family duty, family member illness, self illness, and more.

The new training program leaves supervisors with a better understanding about:

  • When a leave request may qualify for FMLA
  • Why they should notify HR about potential FMLA absences
  • What to do when an employee has met FMLA eligibility requirements

"It’s vital that companies train their supervisors on FMLA," said Darlene Clabault, J. J. Keller's Senior Editor of Human Resources content. "A supervisor needs to know the basics of the law and how to recognize situations that may qualify for leave. Otherwise a supervisor could unintentionally deny an employee’s rights under FMLA, be held personally liable, and create legal ramifications for the employer.”

At the heart of the DVD-based training program is an 18-minute, closed-captioned video that features a message for management and a 10-question interactive quiz. Additional teaching aids consist of a trainer’s guide, 11 supervisor handbooks, and a trainer tools CD-ROM — complete with a customizable PowerPoint® presentation.

FMLA For Supervisors is available for purchase today in DVD, Interactive Online, Interactive CD-ROM and Video On Demand: Pay Per View formats by calling 800-327-6868 and referencing Promo Code 51051 or by visiting jjkeller.com/fmlatraining.
