We recently crossed the 50 employee plateau :) , so now have a new set of employment laws to follow :( . So in a couple weeks I get to attend a meeting with our HR/insurance/Worker's comp person who's going to tell our office manager, President and I all the new stuff we need to do. I'd like to do a little prep beforehand.

I actually have a degree in HR, and am planning on brushing the dust off a couple text books this weekend. But it's also been 10 years since college, maybe something has changed? I'm pretty familiar with FMLA since we got some first-hand knowledge when our son was born.. but indirectly since the :Princess: 's job is our insurance.

Anyone know of a good web site? Or can recommend a good resource? Or just want to show off how cool you are and care to share your FMLA knowledge? :thumb: tia..

I was thinking the FMLA was for companies with over 1000 employees. The union died because too many people abused FMLA at the super secret place I work at...

No, 50 employees and you're required to abide by FMLA. thanks for the tip Wes, that was too obvious http://www.dol.gov/dol/topic/benefits-leave/fmla.htm

Nakman,

I am an HR/Benefits guy. If you are looking for a refresher and are going to be responsible for admin then I would attend the FMLA classes put on by Mountain States Employers Council. http://www.msec.org/seminar/catalog/view.asp?id=2182

It is also best to locate one of the HR councol groups as information and law changes all of the time.

Thanks! In fact I think it's actually MSEC who's doing the class, we consult with them all the time. small world.. But I just think I should "know this stuff" so I'm doing a little brush-up beforehand.
