Why Should You Attend:

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much of the world as we knew it. With such an infectious disease, the employee has either been sick or caring for family members who are – or have had to deal with school and child care closings, or so many other issues arising out of COVID. Employees have needed to take time off to deal with these many challenges. In turn, employers have the challenge of running their business and managing employee leave during such turbulent times.

Even more simple leave requests can be complex and nuanced, posing challenges to even the most seasoned Leave Administrators. The possibility of costly, drawn-out litigation, only adds to the stress and pressure. Add to that: most employees making leave requests will be eligible for protection under the FMLA, ADA, and, now, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) among other laws. How does an employer untangle that web? This webinar will explore that and other questions many employers have been asking.

  • FMLA, ADA, FFCRA and Workers’ Comp Basics
  • Where FMLA, ADA, FFCRA and Workers’ Comp overlap, and where/how they differ;

  • Understanding some of the key provisions in the DOL’s 5 rounds of guidance in the wake of the FFCRA
