Developing a comfortable level managing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Workers Compensation, separately or when they interconnect takes knowledge, skills and experience.
In this 90 minutes Webinar, I will cover the knowledge and skills needed to get the level of comfort but most importantly, I will be sharing with you my own experience from the last 13 years working with 240 people with different disabilities daily.
At the end of the Webinar you will understand the interplay of these laws to assure legal compliance as well as to provide employees with the benefits and protections each law provides.

Why should you attend this webinar?

The number of Disability related charges filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is once again climbing. It has been now fifteen years in a row that this trend stated and it just does not stop. Last year 30.7% of all the claims filed with the EEOC were "Disability" related, that is an astonishing 28,073 claims.
When employees are injured or disabled or become ill on the job, they may be entitled to medical and/or disability-related leave under two federal laws: The American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA). In addition, state Workers? Compensation laws have leave provisions that may apply. Depending on the situation, one or more of these laws can apply to the same employee.
The interaction of the FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation laws is known by many employers as the "Bermuda Triangle". I consider this more like a "Tsunami" ready to happen. It is crucial that employers ensure compliance with these laws as a violation can result in significant damages such as wages, back pay, reinstatement, retroactive benefits, compensatory damages and punitive damages. The best way to handle the interaction of these laws is to know when each law is implicated and exactly what each one requires.
