FMLA Communication: Getting the Conversation Right 

By Darlene Clabault Wednesday, May 10, 2023 

Tundra Lodge 

7:30AM – 9:30AM


The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires quite a bit of communication between you (the company leave administrator) and employees. Your responsibilities under the law are generally initiated with an employee’s notice of the need for leave. Such notice, however, can take many, even nonverbal, forms. From there, however, the dialogue truly begins and continues throughout leave. It doesn’t necessarily end when an employee exhausts his or her FMLA leave. 

Some of the communication includes a poster, notices (in writing and not), certifications, and status reports. It’s possible that a health care provider might also be involved. 

This presentation will look at the back-and-forth dialogue between you and employees that is required under the FMLA as well as optional discussions that can help you steer clear of claims.


Darlene (Dolly) Clabault has been at J.J. Keller for over 20 years, where she researches, answers questions, and creates content on a variety of employment laws including the FMLA, the ADA, and the FLSA. She is a member of SHRM and speaks at various SHRM conferences.
