This webinar will:

  • Discuss best practices for leave policies (paid leave, unpaid leave, and FMLA leave) including what changes should be made regarding employees seeking leave due to COVID-19.
  • Discuss best practices for implementing telework policies for employees working from home
  • Provide an overview of what documentation employers can require from employees when they are seeking leave due to COVID-19.
  • Discuss benefit considerations when an employee is going on paid leave or going on unpaid leave (FMLA and non-FMLA), such as whether coverage will continue, whether employer and employee contributions must continue, and whether contributions can be modified when an employee is going on leave.
  • Discuss benefit considerations when an employee is returning from paid leave or unpaid leave (FMLA and non-FMLA), such as whether contributions can be modified when an employee returns.
