This training program will discuss the knowledge and skills needed to develop a comfortable level managing the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Workers Compensation, separately or when they interconnect. At the end of the webinar, attendees 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.

Course Objective

Today, the workplace is an inclusive environment. There is a significant business as well as ethical and moral necessity to employ individuals with disabilities. Organizations must be comfortable with the processes involved in handling issues when it comes to disabilities, accommodations and taking care of employees. This is definitely a different arena and sometimes an uncomfortable one for HR, managers and supervisors especially, if we don’t know what we can or can’t do.
Dealing with these gray areas is becoming more and more crucial in the workplace to ensure we are fair to our employees and to be in compliance with the laws on FMLA, ADA and Workers Compensation. This course will discuss:

  • The most common disabilities under ADA.
  • Statutory exceptions to the term “disability”.
  • The difference between ADA and ADAAA.
  • When “employee separation” is the only route.
  • Best practices to maintain an inclusive environment.
  • Engaging in the interactive process is critical to be in compliance with the law.
  • Myths and facts about reasonable accommodation.
