Why Should You Attend:

Today, the workplace is an inclusive environment. There is a significant business as well as ethical and moral necessity to employ individuals with disabilities. Organizations must be comfortable with the processes involved in handling issues when it comes to disabilities, accommodations and taking care of employees. This is definitely a different arena and sometimes an uncomfortable one for HR, managers and supervisors especially, if we don’t know what we can or can’t do.

Topic Background:

When employees are injured or disabled or become ill on the job, they may be entitled to medical and/or disability-related leave under two federal laws: the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). In addition, state Workers’ Compensation laws have leave provisions that may apply. Depending on the situation, one or more of these laws can apply to the same employee. The interaction of the FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation laws is known by many employers as the “Bermuda Triangle”. It can also be akin to a “Tsunami” ready to happen. It is crucial that employers ensure compliance with these laws as a violation can result in significant damages such as wages, back pay, reinstatement, retroactive benefits, compensatory damages and punitive damages. The best way to handle the interaction of these laws is to know when each law is implicated and exactly what each one requires.
