Managing the FMLA, ADA, and Workers’ Comp Bermuda Triangle (Orland Park, IL)

Untangling the web of employee leave laws is one of the most difficult responsibilities an employer faces — particularly the FMLA. Employers must not only understand the multitude of leave laws, but it is critical to appreciate the subtle interplay between such laws.

This seminar is designed to help employers of all shapes and sizes recognize key issues in administering virtually all types of government mandated leave laws.  This seminar will also provide valuable insight into how an employer’s voluntary leave policies and benefits impact mandatory leave laws.  With the onslaught of new legislation and significant case law developments in the area of employee leave, this live seminar should not be missed.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding and administering FMLA leave
  • Interplay of the ADA and Workers’ Compensation on mandated leave
  • Dealing with difficult employees, including abuse of leave
  • Recognizing and avoiding retaliation
  • And more!
