Dena B. Calo, Partner and Director of the firm’s Human Resource Practices Group, recently published an article entitled “Unforeseeable Leave Is Not Unmanageable Leave Under the FMLA” in Thompson’s HR Compliance Expert Newsletter. The piece examines how an employer should approach a situation where an employee may need to take FMLA leave, without notice, for a time period longer than the 12 week FMLA entitlement. Ms. Calo delves into distinctions between foreseeable and unforeseeable leave under the FMLA and the parameters of the requirement to specifically define the length of the leave, as well as the importance of established company policies.
