Even the most seasoned H.R. practitioners and leave administrators can get tripped up by employee leave issues. First there’s all the different requirements and nuances of the Family Medical Leave Act. Employees can also be eligible for leave as a reasonable accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Amendments (ADAAA). If that’s not enough an employee who sustains a work-related injury can be eligible for time off under Workers’ Compensation laws. Some employees can be eligible for under two laws or even all three at once. So, what’s an employer to do? This seminar will help you untangle the web and navigate the overlap. You will also learn how to take a holistic, proactive approach to managing employee leave – and issues that may come up with employees on leave—to minimize leave abuses.
