Learn About Your Responsibilities towards Employees with Bipolar Disorder under ADA and FMLA Regulations

It seems that bipolar conditions are being diagnosed at a greater frequency than ever before. There are a lot of misconceptions about this debilitating condition – ranging from skepticism that someone really has the illness to the thought that those with the condition are violent. Those with proper treatment can become productive employees. Employer responsibilities towards those with the condition under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act are about as complex as the condition itself.

This webinar by our expert speaker, Susan Fahey Desmond, will walk you through the practical and legal challenges of dealing with employees who are struggling with bipolar disorder. It will also review your responsibilities towards bipolar employees under ADA and FMLA regulations.

Session Highlights:

  • What is bipolar disorder? Why is there a rise in the diagnosis of bipolar disorder?
  • How are the EEOC and the courts treating bipolar disorder within the meaning of the ADA?
  • Your obligations under the Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Can you require an employee to seek medical treatment if you feel that the employee is demonstrating behaviour that is threatening or dangerous to others?
  • When can you request an employee to seek treatment through the EAP?
  • Can you require an employee to stay on his/her medication? What are your rights if the employee fails to take his/her medication?

 Who should attend?

  • Company owners
  • Human resource managers
  • Human resource staff
  • Benefits specialists
