Mapping Out Mental Health Policies

Mental Health

We’ve all seen the headlines. Drug addiction, depression, anxiety, even suicide at work are impacting workplace culture and productivity. Firing workers with mental illness can land you in court. What HR needs is a plan that’s compassionate and effective – that lets you identify troubled workers before they become unreliable, unproductive employees and get them back on track with treatment.

Find out how to balance mental health treatment, productivity, FMLA leave and ADA reasonable accommodations with Mapping Out Mental Health Policies.

Noted employment attorney Anniken Davenport will update you on depression, anxiety and drug addiction at work, telling you:

  • How the increase in mental health problems is affecting productivity and requires creative solutions beyond time off. Mental illness impacts everyone at work – not just the depressed, anxious or addicted employee. Learn what strategies you can employ to help everyone.
  • How to determine what kind of leave the employee is entitled to. Is it FMLA leave? Do you have to provide intermittent leave for medical appointments? Counseling? AA meetings?
  • When does the ADA apply? Do you know what types of diagnoses are covered disabilities? What about drug addiction to illegal substances?
  • When you must keep information confidential and when you have an obligation to disclose that information
  • How to discipline employees whose mental health issues are impacting their work without triggering an ADA lawsuit
  • Why you need both a workplace violence prevention plan and a medical emergency plan in place. OSHA requires it but most employers haven’t updated theirs for the modern workplace and mental health issues.

There's no reason to walk on egg shells when it comes to mental health issues in the workplace. Learn how to deal with them in a safe, respectful and legal way with the expert guidance and strategies covered in this session. Get your copy of Mapping Out Mental Health Policies now!
