    Family & Medical Leave Act
    'Our FMLA Journey' 

    Our speaker, Vicki LaForte, will tell a story of a company with approximately 7000 employees (primarily unionized) and its journey from being essentially non-compliant in FMLA administration to now being start of art. She will describe the processes and challenges and how to turn your headaches with administering FMLA around.
