When The Military Comes Home: USERRA, VEVRRA, FMLA, COBRA, HIPAA & More
|Date / Time:
As a result of the continuing global war on terrorism, employers are faced with an unprecedented level of impact of military service on the workplace. What must an employer do when an employee gets orders to be activated? Do you have to hold the job open? What if it's an employee's family member with the orders - what are an employer's obligations then? Do you need to track veterans who apply for employment with your company? If so, what are your obligations, including reporting.
Led by a former U.S. Army Judge Advocate who deployed to Iraq, this topic explores the pertinent laws for these circumstances, including the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act (USERRA) and the military service-related leave granted under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
You will be provided with employer responsibilities and employee's rights as well as practice tips for handling common situations. The responsibilities for covered federal government contractors and subcontractors under the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA) including affirmative action to employ and advance veterans will also be explained.

|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.
