How To Discipline Or Terminate A Workers' Compensation Claimant
|Date / Time:
|| Audio Conference|
This live webinar will address many of the difficult issues that arise when considering whether to discipline or terminate an employee who is also a workers' compensation claimant.
It covers the core concepts underpinning workers' compensation statutes and the primary types of anti-retaliation provisions found in workers' compensation statutes.
It then examines the steps you can take when disciplining or terminating a workers' compensation claimant to avoid allegations of retaliation and, if such a claim is raised, to defeat it.
Finally, it addresses the interplay between the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) with workers' compensation statutes.

|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.
