In this on-demand webinar, we will explore three major leave laws that can come into play when an employee is injured on or off the job, has a disability, or has a serious medical condition:  the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and state Workers’ Compensation law.  We will review each statute and its framework, and discuss how leave is triggered under each and what is required.  We will then explore how the statutes overlap and how an employer can successfully navigate through the quagmire.  Other areas of interest discussed will include light duty assignments, return to work, reinstatement, documentation, reasonable accommodations and more.  Please join me for a lively and interesting discussion you will not want to miss!
