Why Should You Attend:

While comprehending FMLA and ADA present challenges of their own, it gets even more complex when considering individuals who get hurt on the job. Workers’ compensation provides for health care and income replacement. But, did you know, that the statute does not, in most states, necessarily provide for job protection. Equally important to understand are that workers’ compensation laws generally indicate that employees relinquish their right to sue their employers for work-related injuries in return for such benefits.

Unfortunately though, one of the more common mistakes employers make is failing to run workers' compensation and FMLA concurrently. Another common mistake happens when the assumption is made that someone defined as having a “disability” under the workers’ compensation statute also should be designated as having a “disability” for ADA purposes. In fact, a person injured on the job may or may not be considered “disabled” for ADA purposes, and, may or may not be eligible for FMLA leave. However, given the confusion of the three, and before getting into the interplay between them, it is important that to first understand the key components of workers’ compensation statute. This webinar will focus on these key components.

In the next and final session in this series, the instructor will take attendees through all three (FMLA, ADA, and workers’ compensation) and discuss the interplay between them.
