Employees With Cancer: Commonsense Answers For ADA, FMLA, And Privacy Compliance
|Date / Time:
An employee has cancer. What do you do?
Last year, there were 1.6 million new cancer cases in the United States, plus an additional 2 million nonmelanoma skin cancer diagnoses. And with these numbers set to rise, it's safe to say you will have an employee, or an employee's family member, fighting this dreaded disease. If the situation weren't difficult enough on a personal level, HR also has to comply with the ADA, FMLA, GINA, and a whole host of privacy laws. And productivity issues come into play when absences become protracted.
That's why it's more important than ever that you're aware of the legal and practical challenges that arise when an employee is diagnosed. Participate in this interactive webinar and learn how to avoid discrimination claims and accommodate your employee, all while meeting organizational needs.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and in just 90 minutes, you'll learn:
- Cancer treatment side effects, physical limitations, treatment schedules, and workplace accommodations, so you know what to expect and how to plan if one of your employees receives this diagnosis
- How to tell if someone with cancer is disabled under the ADA and the documentation you may request
- Types of workplace accommodations that may be necessary, including flexible scheduling for treatments
- When granting too much time off for employees with cancer may be problematic and how to know how much is too much
- How FMLA impacts employees with cancer and those caring for family members with cancer
- When cancer is considered a serious health condition under FMLA
- Documentation required for FMLA leave
- How to deal with performance issues and safety concerns related to cancer patients
- What constitutes medical information for privacy concerns
- How to ensure HIPAA and GINA compliance
- How much information you can legally disclose to supervisors and co-workers
- And much, much more
In just 90 minutes, you'll gain a complete understanding of which laws and regulations come into play when you're dealing with an employee who has cancer. Register now for this event risk-free.

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?
This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in CD version, as shown in the pricing options below.
|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
