The Employee Leave Workshop: Successfully Managing Difficult Situations

Employee Leave Workshop

What single employee issue do you deal with most often at work?

You probably spend a huge chunk of your time navigating the complex and inconsistent array of laws and policies that come into play when employees take leave or have attendance problems.

One simple HR or management mistake can create an angry employee, a career black eye … and a million-dollar lawsuit. The stakes have never been higher.

On Wednesday, March 11, stop wondering if you're making all the right decisions and start managing employee leave with confidence.

This new webinar (updated for the new 2020 laws) will teach you how to handle the most challenging leave requests that can simultaneously require compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws, such as pregnancy bias and workers' compensation laws.

You will learn:

  • When you're required to offer job-protected leave under the FMLA and ADA
  • What to do when these laws overlap with each other (and with your time-off policies)
  • When you must provide leave as a medical accommodation
  • What leave is considered "reasonable" under the law – and what's an "undue hardship"
  • A five-step roadmap for evaluating leave requests to determine which laws apply
  • The red flags of leave abuse – and how to respond
  • How to manage return-to-work issues after injury or sickness (light duty? transfer? intermittent leave?)
  • How the ever-growing list of state and local leave laws impacts your decisions
  • What to do when an employee's leave time has been exhausted
  • Answers to YOUR specific leave issues in your workplace
