Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training will provide participants with a working knowledge of ADA, FMLA, GINA, COBRA and Workers Compensation laws. Get practical advice on how you can handle situations that require understanding of all or some of these laws.

Why Should You Attend:

Employers have long struggled with their legal obligations when an employee's illness or injury triggers possible rights under the ADA, the FMLA, and state workers' compensation laws.

The difficulty in complying with these laws has become more complicated – Congress expanded the ADA to ensure broader coverage.  Congress passed GINA prohibiting what an employer might ask when seeking medical information to comply with the ADA or the FMLA.

And, the ultimate question, when can you terminate because the employee has just been on leave for too long?  What benefits must you offer?

During this session, we will explore these very difficult questions and offer insight to how to handle these thorny issues.

Learning Objectives:

To achieve a working knowledge of all of these laws so that you know when you have a potential legal issue.

  • To learn practical advice on how to handle situations that trigger some or all of these laws.
  • To learn how your policies can help/hurt you.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Why an employee's on-the-job injury might trigger the ADA, the FMLA, and, of course, workers' compensation.
  • What rights employees have under the FMLA when they suffer on-the-job injuries.
  • Whether an employer is required to provide light duty as a reasonable accommodation under the ADA.
  • Can you require an employee to accept a light duty position?  What if the employee refuses?
  • When can you terminate an employee who has been out too long?
  • What employee benefits must you offer employees who are on a leave of absence due to an on-the-job injury?
  • When, if ever, can you run your leave policies consecutively against workers' compensation leave?  How can you do so without violating the FMLA?
