Learn proven strategies for stemming the tide of employee abuse of the FMLA and ADA.

Both the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) were created with the noblest of intentions. However, the number of employees who regularly abuse the protections afforded under these critical Acts create a haze around them that is nothing short of ignoble.

A few facts:

  • The median loss caused by occupational fraud cases worldwide is $140,000. [Source: Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' (ACFE) 2012 global fraud study]
