    Interplay between ADA, Workers Compensation, and the FMLA

    These laws often create the Perfect Storm and don’t always play nice with each other. This program will focus on navigating the interplay of workers compensation, FMLA and the ADA. How these laws interact when it comes to the never-ending leave of absence, mental health issues and intermittent leave. “Reasonable” accommodations--when is enough … enough? We will take a more in depth look at these laws and provide practical solutions with real life examples.  Through case examples, we will address those tough issues faced by HR and management as companies struggle with trying to accommodate the employee while at the same time doing what is in the best interests for the company.
