Untangling the web of employee leave laws is one of the most difficult responsibilities an employer faces — particularly the FMLA, ADA, and Workers’ Compensation Bermuda Triangle.  

Employers must not only understand the multitude of mandated leave laws, but it is critical to appreciate the subtle interplay between such laws.  This webinar, presented by Noah Frank of SmithAmundsen, is designed to help employers of all shapes and sizes recognize key issues in administering medical-related leave laws, including valuable insight into how an employer’s voluntary leave policies and benefits impact mandatory leave laws.  

With the onslaught of new legislation, increasing administrative regulation, and significant case law developments in the area of employee leave, this fast-paced 90 minute live webinar should not be missed!
