Laws such as the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) contain many complicated provisions. If like many other employers, managers and supervisors, you too have difficulty understanding them, you’re not alone. But things become even more complicated when two or more laws intersect. And violations can lead to costly damages, such as having to provide back pay, lost wages, reinstatement, and much more.
There are many rules and laws that govern what happens when an employee takes a leave. And although the federal FMLA is considered the “bible” for employers when considering obligations and an employee’s rights in leave scenarios, other statutes must also be considered. For example, do you know your obligations when an on-the-job injury is involved – or when the leave is triggered by a disability unrelated to the workplace (e.g. heart attack)?
Get answers to these and other related queries on this hot topic! Join this must-attend webinar by employment law consultant Mark Tabakman, who will show you how to avoid unwanted lawsuits by complying with employee leave regulations and laws – even if you don’t know all the legal nuances. You will learn the basic principles that apply to leave scenarios under different laws, and how they interconnect. You will also understand the differences between leave laws and accommodation statutes, the role of accommodation in leave situations, the issues involved in discharging employees on leave/returning from leave, when an employer must give or deny a leave, and much more.
This webinar will teach you the “art” of recognizing potential issues and exposures – and show you how to nip them in the bud. Tabakman will clearly analyze potential problem areas and suggest proactive, strategic protocols and policies to address them with.
You will also receive an easy-to-understand Power Point presentation – or a virtual “law book” – that you can use to tackle flashpoint issues. After attending the session, you will be able to confidently comply with the appropriate leave regulations and laws under FMLA and ADA.
