Presented by William Wiley

Federal employees have significant legal rights when it comes to taking approved leave. But that doesn't mean an employee can take leave at any time for any reason. And you don't have to feel helpless when it comes to getting the work done while honoring leave entitlements.

First, federal employment law expert Bill Wiley explains the five major categories of leave:

  • Annual
  • Sick
  • Leave without pay
  • Absence without leave
  • Family and Medical Leave Act

Then, Mr. Wiley details specific strategies to address a variety of leave problems. From taking overly long breaks, to not complying with a set work schedule, you discover strategies to:

  • Handle the chronically late employee without using discipline
  • Obtain solid medical evidence relative to an employee's claims of illness or disability
  • Manage the employee who is legitimately sick intermittently for an extended period of time
  • Ensure that work still gets done while honoring employees' rights to leave and flexiplace work

And, just in time to help you with the increased number of federal employees now eligible for telework, you learn how to set up accountability procedures for employees working remotely so you can eliminate potential abuse.
