Why should you attend?

In defending regarding any compliance matter, a company's best defense lies in demonstrating it made “good-faith efforts” to comply with the law by establishing its practices and policies as prescribed by the relevant regulations. By conducting your own FMLA self-audit, an employer can correct problems before a DOL investigation or employee lawsuit arises. However, what should you be looking for? How do you get started? In addition, most importantly, what should you do if your FMLA audit reveals problems?
