Employee Leaves under the FMLA, ADA, and Other Laws

Managing leaves of absence is an ongoing issue for many employers. Several laws potentially apply to leaves -- the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and workers' compensation apply most often. Recent guidance under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act has added protections for pregnant employees. Employees who serve in the reserves or as active duty military have rights under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act limits an employer's access to medical information. Health care reform has added rules for handling time out on a leave when determining if the person should be considered a full-time employee. And a growing number of cities and states are requiring employers to provide paid sick leave.
During this 90-minute intermediate level webinar we will provide an overview of each law's basic requirements and help you to understand how the laws interact, overlap, and occasionally contradict each other. We also will provide tips on how to handle some tricky situations, such as requests for light duty or to work from home, mandatory overtime, and extended absences.
