On Thursday, October 25, Jo Ellen Whitney, employment law attorney, was a featured guest speaker at the BLR FMLA Masterclass.

Susan Fentin, attorney at Skoler, Abbott & Presser in Massachusetts, presented the seminar with topics ranging from FMLA fundamentals and regulatory compliance to preventing abuse and coordinating FMLA with other protections. BLR invited Jo Ellen as the featured guest to discuss Iowa leave law and how it intersects with FMLA. The day ended with an intensive workshop addressing the real-life application of FMLA rules, DOL regulations, and court rulings.
