On Tuesday, September 13, five Davis Brown attorneys led the FMLA Master Class for BLR (Business & Legal Resources). Michele (Warnock) Brott, Kelsey Crosse, Becky Knutson, Deborah Tharnish and Jo Ellen Whitney led the workshop for a group of 20 HR specialists focused on the details of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) law.
The workshop was for advanced human resources practitioners needing to delve deeper into FMLA law. The intensive day-long workshop provided comprehensive knowledge for the group of gathered professionals. Morning sessions included substantive instruction on fundamental FMLA compliance principles in light of new and existing regulations, court rulings, and application of this far-reaching law. The afternoon real-world scenario discussions allowed attendees to engage with their peers, solving challenges faced day in and day out concerning intermittent leave, return to work, employee performance, and much more.
In addition to offering this and other workshops, BLR publishes the Iowa Employment Law Letter, a publication which Jo Ellen Whitney, Michele Brott and Tara Hall edit monthly.
