Demystify Various Leave Issues—Workers’ Compensation Leaves, FMLA Leave, Accommodation Request under the ADA with Expert Susan Desmond

Managing employee leaves is probably one of the more complex tasks a human resource professional performs. Working through the tangled web of workers’ compensation leaves, FMLA leave, accommodation requests under the ADA requires intricate handling; or else it can expose the employer to significant risks. A company’s own internal policies, short term/long term leave has been made even more complicated with recent amendments and liberal court interpretations. One false move can land you in court with a claim for back pay, compensatory and punitive damages. These claims always have the potential for significant damages as the employee needing leave is always a sympathetic plaintiff. 

Stay on top of various leave issues – from how worker’s compensation leave applies to these recent regulatory changes to the latest definitions of “disability” under the ADA, and more— in this riveting 90-minute On Demand session with Susan Desmond.

Session Highlights:

  • Insights on laws that protect an employee’s need for leave – workers’ compensation, FMLA, ADA, short term/long term disability
  • Employees’ reinstatement rights – what is a substantially equivalent position?
  • Getting employees off workers compensation through light duty positions – do you have to offer them?
  • Learn about employees’ benefit entitlements while on leave
  • Calculating intermittent leave under the FMLA
  • Calculating what pay is owed to the employee while on leave
  • Getting medical information you need to determine your obligations to an employee requesting leave
