Over the past year alone, employers have been forced to defend FMLA and ADA lawsuits due simply to an inappropriate comment from a manager after an employee requests time off or an accommodation in the workplace.
A snide comment about an employee in an email...Discussing an employee’s medical condition with others in a meeting...Telling an employee that the Company “can’t afford” for him to take time off. Despite an employer’s best policies (and intentions), all it takes is a new or untrained manager to cause an FMLA or ADA-related lawsuit. In annual FMLA webinar, FR partner Jeff Nowak and Matt Morris, VP of FMLASource, will use a case-study format to show how managers undermine otherwise compliant corporate policies and HR practices. More importantly, we then will give you the content to create your very own FMLA and ADA training program.
In this session, we will focus on:
- How managers are increasingly undermining an employer’s defense of an FMLA and ADA lawsuit, and how to identify the risk factors
- Where to look for the most common pitfalls in how managers handle FMLA and ADA leave – through in-depth discussion of scenarios and related cases
- Constructive methods you can use to train managers in the process of both FMLA and ADA leaves. Yep, you read it correctly. We will provide the actual content you should use in your FMLA and ADA training sessions!
