ADA, FMLA, And Workers’ Compensation Summit: Mastering HR's Intersecting Leave Law Obligations

Description:

United Parcel Service, Inc. (UPS) has agreed to pay $2 million to 90 current and former employees who allegedly were discriminated against on the basis of disability. The EEOC had filed a class action lawsuit in 2009 alleging that UPS automatically “fired disabled workers when they reached 12 months of leave, without engaging in the interactive process required by law,” according to an EEOC press release.

The case underscores the importance of ensuring that the steps you’re taking to ensure that disabled workers are provided reasonable accommodations, which may include additional leave time, will pass legal muster.

That’s often easier said than done because addressing an employee’s rights at the intersection of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and state workers’ compensation laws can be quite complex.

Which laws apply, and in what order? When does leave run consecutively, and when does it run concurrently? Can a single condition or injury span across two or even all three of these protective (and complex) laws?

Join us for an intensive, one-day learning event on how intersecting ADA, FMLA, and workers’ comp regulations affect your policies and procedures, and what you MUST do to ensure you’re in compliance:

  • Why inflexible leave policies may violate the ADAAA
  • How to distinguish between a serious health condition and a disability that might require leave
  • Current definitions for parent, child, and spouse under the FMLA
  • How to handle requests for extensions of leave after FMLA leave expires
  • The differences between “FMLA-land” and “ADA-territory” and how understanding that can help you handle leave requests

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.
