Follow a case study of an organization that went from over 50% employee turnover and abysmal employee opinion survey results, to winning state and local Best Place to Work honors. See how HR can be a key driver in shaping organizational culture, and ultimately, business results.

      Stephanie Rawitt presents:

      FMLA/ADA/Worker's Compensation

      **This event will be held virtually via Zoom**

      Program Overview:

      The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state workers' compensation statutes all protect employees who need to take time off from work because of medical, disability, or family issues. These laws intersect and overlap, and in some cases, all three may protect an employee.

      This presentation will prepare human resources personnel to address and assess leave requests under these statutes and help them to better navigate difficult performance and termination decisions that arise while an employee is on job-protected leave. The presentation will outline an employer's obligations under the FMLA, ADA, and other leave protection laws, and best practices for documenting performance issues and disciplinary actions and avoiding retaliation claims.

      We will review these and other relevant issues:

      • How can employers respond to common types of employee leave abuse without violating the law?
      • How can employers ensure compliance in situations where they must navigate multiple laws regulating employee leave?
      • How can employers approach disciplining an employee claiming entitlement to leave, special ADA consideration, or workers' comp?
      • What are the best practices to implement to avoid retaliation/discrimination claims under the FMLA, ADA, or workers' comp?
      • When is it permissible to terminate an employee on FMLA leave?
      • How do courts evaluate timing issues in retaliation cases?
