Blurred Lines: The Intersection of ADA, FMLA and Workers’ Compensation

Duration: 60 minutes

Understanding the nuances of the FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation benefits is difficult enough when you examine each individually. But not all employee needs fit neatly into one of the three. In fact, workers may be eligible for special protections under all three of the laws -- plus some state and local protections too. Join us for this must-attend program that will guide you through the nuances of each set of regulations and how they impact your business. (more details below)

* Approved for 1.0 recertification credit hour through HRCI & SHRM.


WHY ATTEND

Categorizing an employee situation as only FMLA, only ADA, or only Workers Comp requirements without consideration of the others can bring costly litigation on your organization.

That’s why we’ve arranged this must-attend webinar with our employment law presenter, Anniken Davenport. She will discuss what every manager and HR professional needs to know about dealing with employees who may be entitled to FMLA leave, reasonable accommodations or workers compensation benefits (or all of the above!)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Attend this fast-paced, information-packed session to learn:

  • How to examine and evaluate each situation under the scope of FMLA, ADA, Pregnancy
  • Discrimination Act (PDA), workers comp and local laws.
  • Why determining that an employee’s request falls only under FMLA and failing reexamining the situation as it changes is a HUGE mistake.
  • How to comply with a crop of new guidelines for accommodating pregnant workers under the
  • FMLA and the ADA and light duty assignments in general.
  • Some of the many situations that require allowances for frequent breaks, including new mothers, diabetic employees, etc.
  • Why a rule that provides for automatic termination for those who have used up available FMLA and other leave may be an automatic ADA violation.
  • Why just about any minor living with your employee qualifies the employee for FMLA leave to care for the child regardless of blood or marriage.
  • Why refusing to hire an applicant with a history of workplace injuries violates state workers’ compensation laws and the ADA.
  • The bottom line: If this program helps you avoid even a single employment law misstep in the coming year, your investment of time and money will be repaid many times over.
