During this 90-minute webinar, FELTG Senior Instructor Barbara Haga will share the details practitioners need to understand regarding implementation and use of paid time off for childbirth, adoption, and foster care under the provisions of the Federal Employee Paid Leave Act which become effective October 1, 2020. Ms. Haga will address important additional changes that OPM incorporated in basic Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) in the interim regulations.
The session will include information on eligibility, computing the number of hours an employee is eligible for, the length of time the employee has to use the leave, multiple uses of FMLA in the same twelve-month period, requirements for care of the son or daughter during the leave period, and much more. The session will include discussion of intermittent use of the paid leave as well as documentation of the need for leave, return to work agreements, and the enforcement and waiver requirements for those agreements.
Attendees will also be able to:
- Explain the details of when an employee is eligible to utilize the paid leave.
- Identify what type of documentation may be requested.
- Make decisions about options agencies have regarding return to work agreements and waivers.
You’ll want to attend this session so that you’ll be equipped with all the relevant information when the law becomes effective October 1. We hope you’ll join us.
