Management Northwest – Legal Update – August 23, 2018
By Patricia Latham Ball, Esq.
TIP #1 – FMLA – Don’t forget that if an employee is out on workers’ compensation for a serious health condition, an employer also has to send out FMLA paperwork and run the time concurrently. Additionally, an employer cannot force an employee to use PTO while out on WC and FMLA.
TIP #2 – Too many employers make the mistake of providing signing, relocation, training or other bonuses without an agreement in place to recoup those funds (from payroll deductions or payback) if the employee quits. Please contact MNW for sample agreements to protect your company.
