This session will help your company comply with leave laws while still effectively managing your workforce and operations. 

Common mistakes in addressing employee leave and in using third parties to administer FMLA leave are all too easy for employers to make. This session will identify those mistakes, provide compliance guidance under both the FMLA and the ADA, and address how to avoid litigation pitfalls while effectively managing your workforce. This session will help you: · Understand the developing parameters of ADA reasonable accommodation leave including temporary and pregnancy-related conditions. · Develop policy and internal guidance to ensure the interactive process on leave determinations. · Apply individualized analysis on required duration of leave and the undue hardship factors. · Equip managers to continue operations during employee job-protected absences.
