What’s next for HR – The Spanish Inquisition?

A recent appellate court held an HR director personally liable for her actions under the FMLA. Showing again that courts are oblivious to how difficult it is to interpret the FMLA in real life. Could jail time be the next punishment when company decisions are disputed?

This is a completely unreasonable punishment. In reality, even employment lawyers, when asked to divine how to interpret the FMLA, admit they usually ask a colleague for a second opinion before rendering advice to HR professionals!
