September 18 - Easing an Employer's Biggest Headache
Devil’s Triangle: ADA, FMLA & Workers’ Compensation
Employee leaves for medical reasons present challenges in light of the myriad of laws that regulate leaves of absence in today’s workplace. Both front line managers and human resources professionals should understand how to juggle compliance with the three most prominent laws regulating medical leaves: the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and workers’ compensation. All three laws, however, have different coverages and provide different rights to employees and employers. The difficulty, of course, is determining which combination of the three laws applies in every leave scenario, and then ensuring compliance as appropriate. In this program we will review the basic areas of coverage under the three laws and common mistakes made in sorting through the overlapping coverage.
