webinarIt’s Webinar Time!

When managing an employee with a medical condition, the issues involved regularly implicate the FMLA or ADA — or both. Using interactive case studies, we will address critical FMLA and ADA compliance considerations when dealing with the most difficult employee leave and accommodation scenarios.

Please join us on Thursday, November 12 (12:00 – 1:15 p.m. central time) for “Where ADA and FMLA Overlap:  Leaves, Accommodations and Headaches, Oh My!” I will be joined by Sara Elder, (Division Vice President, Fair Employment & Compliance, for Sears Holdings Management Corporation) and Matt Morris (Vice President at ComPsych).

And the best part? It’s FREE!  Click here to register for this complimentary webinar. When you register, please take a moment to tell us your most burning FMLA and ADA questions — we’ll weave the best you have into our presentation.

During the webinar, Sara, Matt and I will highlight the most difficult FMLA/ADA overlap issues employers face and identify practical solutions to help employers stay compliant. Among other topics, we will address:

  • Requests that implicate the FMLA and ADA and whether leave and/or workplace accommodations are necessary
  • Employee requests for a “less stressful position” – is it an FMLA or ADA issue?
  • Examine the roles of HR and managers and provide tools and best practices for effective communication during the leave management and accommodation processes
  • ADA Intermittent leave!?! Do we have to?
  • When discussing “reasonable accommodations,” what does “reasonable” mean? Reasonable to whom?
  • The age old question: When FMLA ends, how much additional leave must an employer provide before terminating the employee?

This session promises to be practical and fun. As has become our custom, we might even throw in a Thanksgiving tune to finish things off.  Click here to register for this complimentary webinar. We look forward to your participation. In the meantime, please email me at jsn@franczek.com with any questions (within the topics above) that you would like us to address.
