When the stakes are high and an employee's behavior is fraught with risk, organizations often struggle to determine whether an employee can remain safely in the workplace. Failure to obtain an appropriate and thorough fitness-for-duty evaluation (FFDE) can have both legal and risk implications.
This webinar will help the employer understand how a FFDE can be a valuable tool. You will learn about the foundations and limits to FFDEs. You will hear a discussion of common risks associated with the FFDE process and will learn some valuable tools to better navigate such risks.
After completing this live webinar, the employer should have greater insight into the components of a defensible FFDE and how to develop a sound fitness-for-duty decision making process.

|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.
