Depression in the Workplace: Strategies for Seamlessly Handling FMLA Requests and ADA Accommodations

Description:

Medically speaking, the term "mental illness" describes a plethora of mental and emotional disorders ranging from mild anxiety to more serious conditions such as depression that significantly interfere with major life activities including learning, working, and simply communicating with others. Legally speaking, "mental illness" isn't quite as easy to define, yet employers are expected to reasonably accommodate employees who fall into this ambiguous category.

The issue of reasonable accommodation is nothing new for employers, but changes to ADA regulations have allowed more mental impairments to fall under the protected category, and this new protected class is also entitled to leave time under FMLA.

You now face critical issues such as how to identify depression and other mental disabilities, how to reasonably accommodate those who have mental illnesses, and how to respond to employees who are in a fragile state without giving rise to a disability discrimination claim. Learning how to respond to these situations is a vital part of keeping employees safe and productive - and keeping your organization free from legal entanglements.

Participate in this interactive webinar, and in just 90 minutes, learn:

  • How to tell if a depressed employee is ìdisabledî under the ADAís mental impairment definition
  • What you should know about the EEOCís recently issued guidance on the role of mental health professionals in assessing accommodations for mental conditions
  • The game plan for handling a depressed employee you believe may be protected under the ADA, including how to engage in a meaningful dialogue with the employee about potential accommodations in an emotionally sensitive and confidential manner
  • Best practices for protecting your organization against ìregarded as disabledî claims
  • How to tell if depression substantially limits an employee from performing one or more major life activities
  • Whether depression is generally a ìcoveredî disability if itís the result of an underlying medical condition or due to an emotional trauma
  • Dos and taboos if you suspect an employee is suffering from depression and/or another mental disability
  • The medical inquires, limited examinations, and documentation you may legally request that the employee provide in support of a need for leave as accommodation
  • Examples of when a job-protected leave of absence would likely be considered a reasonable accommodation
  • How to respond to erratic attendance and persistent tardiness, including when to raise potential FMLA leave as an option
  • How to successfully manage intermittent leave for chronic depression and curb potential FMLA abuse related to depressed workers
  • When you may legally discipline or terminate an employee with depression without sparking liability under federal disability and leave laws
  • And more!

In just 90 minutes, learn your rights and obligations for reasonably accommodating employees with depression. Register now for this informative 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.

The live 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.
