A Comprehensive Review with Best Practices for Human Resource Professionals

Figuring out how to navigate and comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act can be difficult in itself. So when FMLA or Workers’ Compensation are also involved, confusion about how each law applies is understandable. As cases increase in complexity with more than one law to apply, it’s important we understand the obligations under each and ensure we have effective processes in place to manage them. After a deep review of the six areas of intersection, we will go through an exercise to see how the intersections apply in real scenarios. To help employers effectively implement each law, we will explore best practices to set up employers and employees for success.

Correction: The speaker states that certification to support an employee’s need for FMLA leave is to be returned to the employer 15 business days from when the employer notifies the the employee of the certification requirement. It should be 15 calendar days. It is also incorrect on Slide 28 of the presentation.
