    FMLA Workshops

    10 a.m. - 1 p.m.ASBA Office, Little Rock


    Do you and your district employees responsible for the hands-on management and administration for absences, disability and FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) really understand the intricacies and requirements of the laws that apply? Do you/they have the skills and knowledge needed to keep from misinterpreting or unintentionally not complying with the law?

    Once again, during the summer of 2020, Arkansas School Boards Association Staff Attorney Kristen Garner will team up with Missy Duke, Attorney with Cross Gunter Witherspoon and Galchus, for intensive instruction on the Family and Medical Leave Act for school district superintendents and other central office staff who handle this issue daily.

    Each two-day workshop will be held in the ASBA training room at 523 South Ringo Street in Little Rock.

    • Day One: Attendees will get a comprehensive overview of the law, cover the duties and responsibilities of the employer, and the rights of the employee of FMLA. There will be a strong emphasis on the interplay with sick or other leave, leave taken for childbirth and child bonding, and the employee’s right to job restoration.
    • Day Two: The second day will take up where day one left off and go in-depth with form completion, timelines, health insurance during FMLA, administrative responses, and real-world practice scenarios.

    The workshops will begin at 10 a.m. and dismiss at 1 p.m. No meals are included. Each class is limited to only 20 students and registrants must attend both days. The training dates for 2020 are: 

    June 16-17, 2020
    July 7-8, 2020
    August 4-5, 2020

    Registration will open and be announced by May 1st.
