How To Avoid Common FMLA/ADA Blunders
Stay up-to-date and in compliance on the latest FMLA and ADA regulations and employer compliance strategies!
The FMLA and ADA are two of the most complicated laws that HR Managers have to deal with. "Leaves" under the law can be disruptive to workers, supervisors, and co-workers when employees repeatedly take leaves of absence.
But is the employee who consistently is given FMLA leave on Fridays using the law correctly or abusing the system because the employer doesn't manage FMLA correctly?
Employers should be aware - and utilize - laws and strategies to limit use and abuse, but need to do so correctly or risk legal fines and headaches.
Attend this webinar and learn how to avoid the top 10 mistakes that employers make when dealing with the administrative nightmares of FMLA, ADA, and leave of absence issues.
You'll better understand what a "serious health condition" is and how it differs from a "disability", what issues and checklists you need to be aware of before approving a requested leave of absence - and before terminating an employee who has been on such a leave of absence, as well as what the "interactive process" under the ADA requires.
Learn how to ensure that you are in compliance with the technical laws, as well as the recent amendments to both the ADA and the FMLA regulations.
