On Wednesday, September 4, three Davis Brown attorneys led the FMLA Master Class for BLR (Business & Legal Resources). Jo Ellen Whitney, Michele (Warnock) Brott, and Maggie Hanson led the workshop for group of approximately 20 Iowa HR professionals focused on the details of Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
The intensive day-long workshop provided comprehensive knowledge and delved deep into FMLA law. Morning sessions included substantive instruction on fundamental FMLA compliance principles and regulations, court rulings, and application of this far-reaching law. The afternoon included real-world scenario roundtable discussions. Attorneys and attendees engaged to discuss solving challenges faced 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 and Michele Brott contribute to monthly.
