ADA/FMLA Leave Issues

Webinar Details$219

Human resource professionals know it is no longer easy to handle employee leaves. Instead of being concerned with company leave policies and workers’ compensation claims; employers now have to consider a host of other laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. During this webinar, we will walk you through this minefield. In this webinar you will learn:


  • When employees are entitled to intermittent or other leave under the FMLA
  • What is a serious health condition under the FMLA
  • Calculating intermittent leave under the FMLA
  • When a leave of absence can be a reasonable accommodation under the ADA
  • Is attendance an essential function of a job
  • New EEOC guidelines under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • When can you terminate for excessive absenteeism/tardiness
  • Running paid leaves concurrently with the FMLA
