FMLA by the Numbers: Making them add up

Webcasts
The FMLA continues to be one of the more complex employment laws. Part of its complexity is all the numbers (and various calculations) that are involved. Twelve weeks. Twelve months. Fifty employees here, 50 employees there (where?). Five days, 15 days, seven days. What’s the difference between 50/20 and 50/75? Then there’s that pesky 1,250 hours. All these different numbers make up some of the most important provisions of the FMLA. This webcast will take a deep dive into the numbers that make up FMLA compliance, including: •employer coverage •an employee’s return from leave, and even •enforcement. The information is designed to help you keep the numbers straight, since some of them are used for multiple purposes. Join us and your FMLA colleagues as we clarify those parts of the law that deal with numbers, and how to keep them all straight. A question and answer session with our FMLA experts will also be included!

Do You Operate Interstate or Intrastate? The answer may surprise you

Webcasts
It seems like a fairly straightforward issue. Interstate transportation involves a vehicle crossing borders and operating in two or more jurisdictions; if a truck never leaves a state, it must be performing intrastate motor carriage. Surprisingly, this is not always true. The FMCSA provides a definition of interstate transportation and it encompasses more than just if a truck or driver ever leave a state - the intent at the time of shipment is key. During this webcast, you'll learn: • The FMCSA’s definition of interstate transportation; • The factors that can either blur or clarify the lines between intrastate and interstate travel; • What compliance rules apply; and • The impact on fleet legalization. We'll also leave time for a Q&A session with our DOT experts!

Entry Level Driver Training and Onboarding

Webcasts
A driver’s basic job is to get from origin to destination without loss, damage, or delay. This means knowing where you are going, counting and securing your cargo (or actually loading it in certain situations), inspecting your vehicle when required to make sure it keeps running and is safe, driving safely, complying with the applicable regulations, and delivering your cargo on time and in good condition, and completing the necessary paperwork along the way. To be able to accomplish all of these tasks safely and efficiently, drivers must be trained by their carriers. How and when you conduct that training is up to you. In this webcast, we will look at what a driver training program should include, how the training should be delivered, and establishing a training schedule.
