Leave After Leave: Handling Employee Requests for Time Off Under the ADA, Workers’ Compensation, and the FMLA

Join the Small Business Legal Center Attorneys Beth Milito and Luke Wake as they provide a road map of issues you need to address under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act and Workers’ Compensation laws, including case studies you can use to work through situations in your business.

Beth and Luke will outline the legal risks of noncompliance with medical leave laws and answer your questions about granting and denying leave requests and terminating employees who don’t return to work. This interactive webinar will cover:

  • Recent changes to medical leave laws and state and municipal sick leave laws;
  • Interaction between the ADA, FMLA, and workers’ compensation;
  • How paid time-off, sick leave, and insured short-term disability benefits work with leave laws; and
  • Best practices, including tips to follow and pitfalls to avoid, particularly when disciplining or terminating employees on leave.

Webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask Beth and Luke questions throughout the presentation and will receive a copy of NFIB’s Model Employee Handbook.
