The Genesis of This Course

The story behind the California Medical Leave and Accommodation Management Specialist Certification Program and why it came into existence... 

How it all started…

Since my early years, I have been travelling the length and breadth of the country, training HR professionals in these complex regulations. After 28 years and training thousands of HR folks, I noticed a strange pattern. During the session breaks, attendees often asked nearly the same kind of questions. 

Even after having all this incredible information, something was missing 

HR pros were still struggling to implement Medical Leaves and Accommodation in their organization effectively. It was crystal clear that information alone wasn’t sufficient. They needed something much more than information.

The need of the hour was a System...

A system that is  easy to follow.

A system that is practical and devoid of legalese. 

system that is built upon the foundation of HR standards of care. 

system that encapsulates both Federal and California specific regulations.

It was something on the lines of - “give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

In other words, instead of troubleshooting and solving the challenges of HR professionals, why not give them a system they can use to solve their problems themselves? 

The answer came in the form of the Integrated Medical Leave and Accommodation Management SystemTM

Announcing: California Medical Leave and Accommodation Management Specialist Certification Course

What People are Saying...

Check out these testimonials from our clients who have attended my workshops and training seminars

Beth's wealth of knowledge is absolutely amazing

I attended one of Beth's NorCal SHRM workshops at Filoli last year and knew that I need this training. Beth's wealth of knowledge is absolutely amazing and sharing real live examples was very helpful. It was a great high level overview and it was clear that I need to spend some time reading through the different laws. I think it will be helpful to tackle each law separately to fully understand it. For someone relatively new to leave management it went almost too fast. [This was a] High level overview of the different leave laws, how they interact with each other and individual company policies along with the role they play in the employee management cycle.

Materials presented were clear and direct

Very thankful for the virtual environment; the presentations were focused (even though a great deal of information was covered); materials were clear and direct. That it was virtual; materials provided were top notch and can serve as a reference. Well worth my time.

This is the best training I have attended

Seeking more knowledge on FMLA/CFRA and how they interact with other types of leaves. It was engaging, and never boring or tiresome. Because it was done via ZOOM I thought it would be really difficult to stay focused, but it wasn't. Firstly, the ability to ask questions anytime, and not feel like Beth was thinking, "This isn't really relevant to what I am trying to convey." I thought it was really helpful to have to overview of everything on the first day, and then more detail on the second day. It helped the information become more familiar, and "stick" a little better. This is the best training I have attended. Beth is so knowledgeable and engaging. Beth and Lee make a great team, and provide everything you need to feel you got what you came there for.
