Description:

As a stand-up employer, you would never dream of discriminating or retaliating against an employee who exercises his or her protected leave rights. But what happens when a legitimate performance issue arises either during or soon after the leave? Consider the following:

  • You just discovered that your bookkeeper has left your company records in shambles. You learned this only because she’s been out on maternity leave for six weeks. Can you fire her?
  • A client manager has been out on ADA-protected leave for six months and the client wants to make a permanent switch to the interim client manager. Can you move the person on leave to a different but comparable post in another part of the country?
  • Your custodian, who was injured on the job, has been working light duty for a year. She’s now ready to return to her old job with no restrictions, but her replacement is doing that job twice as fast (and, frankly, more thoroughly) than the old custodian ever did, even pre-injury. Can you keep the custodian in the light-duty job if the hours and pay are the same?
Join us for an in-depth webinar with an experienced employment attorney who will provide valuable insight on how to handle tricky situations like these, without exposing yourself to unnecessary legal risks.

You’ll learn:
  • When leave is “protected” under the ADA, FMLA, workers’ comp or sick leave laws—and when it isn’t
  • How to document employee performance as a safeguard
  • Tips on how to communicate with employees on protected leave, so you can keep your organization out of legal trouble
  • When and how you can discipline an employee who just returned from protected leave
  • When and if it is appropriate and legal to fire an employee during a protected leave
  • How to go about disciplining employees out on workers’ compensation, FMLA, or ADA leave
  • Recordkeeping pitfalls to avoid with respect to workers on protected leave
  • How to protect your organization by clearly communicating your policies and expectations
  • And much more!

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand version, as shown in the pricing options below.

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.
