One of the greatest challenges the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) faces in enforcing the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is that too often, employees are unaware that they have rights under the FMLA, or that the FMLA even exists.
If you are an employer with a drug-free workplace program, keeping your employees free from illegal drug use and preventing accidents caused by intoxication is a major concern. It’s important to note that reasonable suspicion training is just one step in maintaining a drug-free workplace.
Do you really know FMLA as well as you should? Does your organization have a thorough policy that covers all of the situations you might face in administering FMLA? If an employee tries to take advantage of FMLA, would you know how to handle it?
Great leaders not only know and manage themselves well, but they are also able to harness the power of emotions to create significant connections with others and be positive influences on their teams and throughout their organizations.
