About This Course:
Employee leave is never simple. FMLA, ADA, and workers’ compensation laws are difficult to interpret, and they work in tandem, sometimes occurring concurrently and sometimes consecutively.

In addition to learning when protected employee leave applies, and under which law(s), employers also need to know what to do when someone is not able to return to work at the end of leave, or if the employee is temporarily unable to perform certain functions. And the growing number of state and local paid leave laws only adds to the complexity.

Join us for a widely popular webinar on the intersection of FMLA, ADA, and workers’ compensation so you can get much needed guidance on how to interpret and comply with applicable leave and disability laws. Our presenter, a skilled labor and employment attorney, will provide you with a roadmap to help maneuver the overlapping and potentially confusing compliance obligations under leave and disability laws.

You’ll learn:
  • Answers to thorny yet common questions like “Which law applies first—the ADA, FMLA, or state workers’ compensation?” and “Can I ever terminate an employee who is on a leave of absence?”
  • Examples of inflexible leave policies that could violate the ADAAA
  • The different compliance obligations that may apply under FMLA and the ADA
  • When you generally may require employees to take FMLA leave concurrently with workers’ compensation leave
  • Examples of when leave as a reasonable accommodation under ADA should be granted
  • How to offer accommodations other than leave without violating FMLA
  • What to do if an employee is unable to return to work at the end of leave
  • The game plan for dealing with employees who are temporarily or permanently unable to perform essential functions
  • Pertinent cases that demonstrate EEOC willingness to target employers who don’t comply with these laws
