FMLA and ADA-Workers-Compensation 2015 : 2-day In-person Seminar on What Bermuda Triangle? FMLA and ADA Interacts with More than Workers Compensation: Pregnancy Discrimination Act, GINA, and More! At Washington, DC


When Apr 16, 2015 - Apr 17, 2015
Where Courtyard by Marriott Capitol Hill/Navy
Submission Deadline TBD

Call For Papers

One of the most difficult tasks thrust upon the human resource professional is trying to determine what leave benefits an employee is entitled to receive. So many laws to consider. Benefit plans to consider. Your own leave policies. There are so many moving targets and, unfortunately, you may find yourself violating one law while complying with the other. Leave issues are top concerns for the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. This seminar will walk you through the latest cases discussing your obligations to provide leave to your employees, how to curb abuse from your employees, and best practices. We additionally will have a number of interactive exercises to assist you in evaluating your legal obligations.
Why should you attend?
The FMLA and the ADA have both been around since the early 90s. So why do you need a seminar discussing what an employer is required to do under these Acts? First, these two statutes are the most frequently violated of any other employment law. It is not that employers intend to violate them - employers are still having a difficult time in understanding their obligations. In addition to the minefield employers must navigate when dealing with the FMLA and the ADA, the EEOC has not released guidelines that overhaul how we deal with pregnancy under Title VII (which implicates the FMLA and possibly the ADA). The OFCCP has now gotten into the game by overhauling its regulations dealing with pregnancy discrimination, and federal contractors should take note! This two day comprehensive webinar will walk you through your legal obligations and through that minefield so you don't step on a bomb!
