Doug Kauffman Was a Speaker at Alabama Self-Insurers Association Winter Workshop
Doug Kauffman, partner in the Birmingham office and member of the Labor & Employment Practice was a speaker at the Alabama Self-Insurers Association’s (ASIA) Winter Workshop February 28- March 1. Doug spoke to attendees about unique challenges and new developments employers face when complying with the obligations under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
ASIA was formed with the goal of helping employers understand the law and any proposed changes, as they seek to ensure equitable coverage for injured employees.
Doug helps employers manage their most valuable assets —their employees. For more than 25 years, he has counseled large and small employers, helping them stay up to date on the law, regulations, and best practices with respect to employment compliance. When issues arise in the workplace, Doug provides real-time solutions. He also handles complaints or audits by various government agencies, such as the EEOC, the Department of Labor, and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and he litigates all employment issues in court. Well respected on both sides of the table, Doug is frequently invited to speak at seminars sponsored by government agencies.
