When Employees Can't Come to Work: Best Practices for Managing FMLA Leave and ADA Accommodations
8:30 AM – 10:30 AM
Pierce Atwood LLP
One New Hampshire Avenue, Suite 350 Portsmouth, NH
Federal and state (and sometimes even local) laws provide significant protection for employees who can’t come to work – or who need job modifications – for medical reasons. But, these laws are complicated and it can be difficult for employers to figure out how to meet these legal obligations and still get the work done. This seminar will go beyond the forms, focusing instead on the challenging real-world issues that HR professionals increasingly face.
In addition to a brief overview of the FMLA and ADA, we will explore practical solutions to the following important issues:
The overlap of FMLA and state leaves
The challenge of intermittent and reduced schedule leave
Reasonable accommodations under the ADA
Managing the interactive process
The FMLA and ADA: working together?
Employees returning from leave with work restrictions
Managing performance when an employee has a medical condition
