Managing leaves of absence under the major federal mandates can be confusing. Some employers with good intentions will administer both leaves by using the same forms, overlap the requirements, and consolidate the processes.As your organization grows, so do the number of regulations and laws you need to follow. Among them are the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
One law kicks in when employees need time off to attend to family or medical needs. The other exists for individuals, even applicants, from the first day of employment. As well, part-timers are protected by this law.
Specifically, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) need to be administered using their own separate guidelines. When taken one by one, it's clear that they are completely different in their own details and requirements and, as a result, must be managed carefully.
If you're new to the field of leave management - whether you're in Human Resources or not - or if your company is growing to the 50-0employee mark, it's wise to educate yourself about the FMLA and ADA and familiarize yourself with the details.
HR practitioners and other business leaders will find this course to be a dynamic one that is full of practical information presented in an easy-to-follow format. It also provides specific steps for administering the leave mandates to ensure that employees are clear on their obligations and you (and your company) understand employer requirements as well.
Join us in this special training session to learn not just about FMLA or ADA - but both - and how they interact with one another.
Why should you attend?
By preparing yourself ahead of time, you'll know the requirements of both the FMLA and ADA beforehand as opposed to implementing a plan and delivering on a process as a specific situation comes up. By attending this training session, you'll have the information you need to build a process for your organization as well as build your own confidence in this area.
This course is especially helpful to the non-HR leader who manages employees and encounters requests for leaves of absence, accommodation, and time off for health reasons.
