With recent expansion of both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act, navigating the waters of an employee’s medical leave can be precarious, at best. Add to the troubled waters, workplace injuries that qualify for workers’ compensation and the employer’s own paid time off programs, and human resources professionals may feel like they are lost in the Bermuda Triangle.
Join attorney Carrie B. Cherveny as she outlines the turbulence and the penalty-infested waters of medical leave laws every employer needs to know about and try to avoid. In this interactive webinar, for which you may submit questions in advance by e-mail or during the event itself by using our “chat” feature, Ms. Cherveny will discuss:
- Recent changes to medical leave laws,
- The interplay of the ADA, FMLA, and workers’ compensation,
- How paid time-off programs and insured short-term disability programs work in this environment, and
- Best practices, including tips to follow and pitfalls to avoid.
