Return-to-Work Compliance When Jobs Are Gone
|Date / Time:
Employers often face concerns when deciding whether and how to return employees to work after a leave of absence. Specifically, it's important to determine legal obligations to these employees, including their rights to leave, rights to light duty positions, and rights to benefits when they return.
This webinar helps employers recognize potential legal problems in returning (or not returning) an employee to the work place, as well as how to avoid potential pitfalls.
The course explains some of the key statutes regarding leave and return-to-work, including workers' compensation laws, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994. We will discuss recommendations for best practices for employee return-to-work under these laws.

|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.
