    a Virtual Workshop

    ​Do you and your district employees who are 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? Are you aware of the new leave provisions associated with the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), including paid sick leave and expanded FMLA leave, related to COVID-19?

    Arkansas School Boards Association Staff Attorney Kristen Garner will team up with Missy Duke, attorney with Cross Gunter Witherspoon and Galchus, for an intensive one-day virtual training on FMLA and applicable FFCRA impacts for school district superintendents and other central office staff who handle this issue daily. The live virtual training will be held on July 8, 2020, via Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZM).

    Morning Session (8:30-11:30)
    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.

    Afternoon Session (1:00 to 3:00)
    The afternoon session will take up where the morning session left off and go in-depth with form completion, timelines, health insurance during FMLA, administrative responses, and real-world practice scenarios.

    Attendees must attend both sessions to receive credit for the event. The cost is $185 per person through July 1, 2020, and $205 after that date.

    The class size limit is 25. Due to limits on the number of participants, there will be no refunds for cancellations after July 2, 2020.
